Enhance your Culinary Skills with DigiChef: Croissant vs Char Siew Sou
Worldchefs and At-Sunrice are taking online learning to the next level with the launch of our new platform, DigiChef!
DigiChef is a 100% experiential online learning platform that will provide students with the skills and knowledge from the East to the West, in addition to Old World and New World cuisines. In just 6-months, students can earn a globally recognized Online Career Diploma!
In this instalment, we introduce our Pastry team, and talk about the similarities and differences between eastern and western versions of laminated doughs. Laminated doughs or more commonly known as puff pastries have been around for centuries. It is created by folding butter into doughs and then folding and rolling it over and over again. The result is very thin alternating layers of dough and butter, which when baked or fried, puffs up into its signature puffy and flaky texture we all love.
