Healthy eating and lifestyle are the hot topics for today. Everyone is looking for healthy food made from as much natural ingredients as possible. One of the most important ingredients for making bread is yeast. But yeast comes in many forms. The yeast that we are accustomed to is instant dried yeast which is heavily commercialized, but convenient. An alternative of using instant yeast is back to the basics, just like in the olden days when commercial instant yeast is of non-existence. This is how Yin’s Sourdough Pizza differs from the rest as the cafe cultivates its own natural yeast, just like how our great grandparents used to make their loaves. This is called wild yeast. Breads made from wild natural yeast are usually called sourdough bread. The Europeans love heavily-textured breads such as sourdough loaves but Asians prefer soft and fluffy white breads. The reason behind is breads made from sourdough are not as fluffy and soft as those made from commercial yeast and moreover it takes longer time to make a sourdough bread. This time, we are going to visit another branch of Yin’s sourdough bakery which is the Yin’s Sourdough Pizza.
It is not hard to locate Yin’s Sourdough Pizza. If you are driving to Lebuh Pantai (Beach Street), look for the side lane with the name of Gat Lebuh China (China Street Ghaut). Yin’s sourdough is located inside Wisma Yeap Chor Ee.
