Japanese Style Breads
Japanese Bread is famously known for its incredibly soft and airy texture, and is used to make various kinds of Kashi Pan (sweet bread) including the popular An Pan and Melon Pan. In fact, the Japanese love the softness in bread so much that it’s almost fanatical! This light, airy texture is achieved through a technique involving a roux “starter” known as tangzhong, a warm flour-and-water paste. It is then added into the final dough, producing a wonderfully soft, springy and tender bread each and every time.
When making Japanese Bread, it can be a little finicky for beginners to get the right texture of the dough. The combination of ingredients, preparations and baking conditions is tricky and can definitely be frustrating without proper guidance. At Chef Tales, we teach you the techniques you need to make this lovely Japanese bread. With just a hint of sweetness, but not overly, you can exercise your creativity to make it either sweet or savory according to your tastes. Once you master this versatile bread, you’ll be able to enjoy all sorts of arrangements of Japanese Bread!

Japanese Style Cakes
Similar to the their fanatical love for soft bread, the Japanese absolutely adore soft, light cakes too! Almost all Japanese cakes employ the meringue method, where egg whites are whipped into a meringue, which is added into the batter right before sending it to bake. This gives the cake it’s light airy texture that makes for an intensely pleasing experience, with a full-bodied cake flavour but a lightness that delights your tongue.
The Japanese cakes you’ll find in the cafes and patisseries in Japan are often labeled “cotton-soft”, including all sorts of cakes such as sponge cakes and cheesecakes. Once you’ve experienced these cakes, you’ll understand why: it truly does have a cotton-soft texture!

I’ve relied on YouTube videos to learn but I’ve always gotten stuck at some point. Taking up this hands-on baking class was a really refreshing and important experience, for the chef instructor was able to pick up my mistakes immediately. I wasn’t even aware that I was making such mistakes in the first place! Thanks to her, I am now able to correct my practical errors!
