It was Chocolate last year this year it's all Bread!

Maybe you remember last year's race car made of 90kg chocolate by the Chefs of Royal Paza on Scott's.
This year it's "Asia's First and Largest Life-sized Bread Race Car!"
The Culinary Executive Chef led a team of 6 chefs, 2 artists, 2 technicians, 2 culinary staff and 5 young volunteers from Metta Welfare Association to create this unique bread race car in support of Community Chest Singapore.
These are the 22 different breads used for the car:
Hard Roll-Curry Roll-Onion Roll-Ceral Rolls- Dark Sour Rye Bread- Country Bread- Soya Bread- French Baguette- Wholemeal Baguette- Sesame Kaiser Roll- Laugen Snadwich- Focaccia Bun- Rustico Baguette- Farmer Bread- Squid Ink Focaccia Bread- Swiss Farmer Bread- Soft Bun- Chinese Bun- Milano Grain- Ciabatta Bread, Honey Milk Bread,- Potato Bread
The team spent S$15,000 and took 549 hours to assemble the life-sized race car. They used a total of 15 kg of yeast, 14 litres of water, 2 kg of salt and 10800 ml of food varnish! The completed car is made up of 1,000 loaves!
Squid Ink Focaccia Bread was used for the tyres.

BREAD TORQUE! is raising funds for Metta School under the care of Community Chest. You can participate in doing a good deed through:
