Daniel Jorda and 2am: lab talk bread

2am: lab hosts Daniel Jorda for a week during the World gourmet submit. 

One of the top bread makers in Europe, Daniel Jorda’s humble background and creativity has touched the chefs at 2am: lab.

We collaborated to make a 7 course meal where bread took centre stage of the dinner for the first time. 

Different flavors and textures of bread were incorporated into the courses. (more photos can be viewed in our gallery) 

When he first arrived, we took him to Ghim moh market where he tasted most of the local delights and bought much local herbs and fruits for the dinner and workshop.

Annatto bread recipe coming soon… 


 One of the highlights was Daniel using our fermented ginger juice to incorporate it in his starter and used this to make some pancakes for one of the courses. 

Daniel loves using spices, dried herbs and vegetables in his bread and it was wonderful seeing him being inspired by our flavor wall and picking ingredients from the wall for use in his bread.
