    Just put a few kg of the Coles or Woolies homebrand in your suitcase.
    Customs won't notice a bit of "White powder"....555

    Makro sell many different flours. One is labelled "Bread Flour" but as I don't make bread I can't say if it is any good.

    You'd better be quick cutting of a slice for yourself Gazmac - or cook it while they are all at the temple 555!
    Makro, Villamart etc all have a range of flours and yeasts down here.

    I'd bring packet mixes with you Gaz or experiment with local stuff like many here, with varying results.

    Here's one local recipe, not sure which flour he uses but likely from Makro:
    400ml flour, 10ml yeast, 2 teaspoons of sugar (for yeast to eat), pinch of salt, enough water for wet dough (I usually add 100ml rye or whole wheat flour).
    Mix it with wet hands for a couple of minutes, shape on grease-proof paper, cover to rise, slide paper and dough into tray, into oven and bake.
    5 minutes to mix, 1 hour to rise, 40 minutes to bake (small loaf).

    555 I've brought heaps of stuff through Thai Customs. Declared and only had a cursory inspection.

    The only time I had grief was in 2001 when me and a returning TG declared 3 bottles of wine between us in the one pack we were using.

    Even with her explaining in his own language he couldn't get his head around the fact that we were both using the same luggage and sharing the allowance of alcohol.

    Of course I was the one getting bolloxed for it, not the TG.



    As for the bread here... they gotta use all the sugar they produce somehow. I find all the bread I've bought here to be loaded with sugar and very sweet.

    Buy Makro fresh baked cobs or baguettes, they're about the best you'll get nation-wide. We like the korn... something wholemeal cob and always slice then freeze. Keeps well, defrosts ok for sandwiches and makes excellent toast with Manuka honey of course!

    I thought Makro might sell the flour but wasn't sure !
    I can just imagine the smell of baking bread wafting through the village(and its a small village ) ! Considering they don't eat bread and would have smelt it before .

    The smell of freshly basked break through a Thai village could trigger a cultural revolution. Once they gather around and you give them a taste, they're going to start to question everything.
    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    Nah - Vegemite - get their Vit B Complex levels up.
    If they won't eat that - more bread for you - Win, Win.
