WKED labs in Hell's Kitchen

So many valuable lessons learned from the WKED experiments in Hell's Kitchen.  Results of experiments varied in a wide-range.

Success?  Failure?? 


No milk
No egg
No white sugar
No additives

1. WKED soy milk bar.  

1lb of soy beans = soy milk + okara 
Let's see what can be made from these... 

2.  WKED Bakery - organic whole wheat bread soy milk from the soy milk bar.  
 Organic roasted chestnuts for $0.99 at the 99 cents store?  Is it expensive or cheap?  First of all, is this really organic?

The first attempt...
Excess water in dough? mmm

 Two flavors - "chest nuts" and "rosemary and olive oil" 
Rating? 2 out of 5 for being over-baked and a lack of yeast.


The second attempt...
 Rating? 3.5 out of 5 for not enough moisture, probably lack of soy milk. Nice flavor and soft texture.  It was perfect with olive oil, salt, and pepper.  Yummy!

3. WKED Bakely - Organic cookie with Okara and Chestnut
Rating? 3.5 out of 5 for rough texture.  Need to invest in a food processor for further improvement.  Flavor of baked soy beans is nice.

4. WKED natto shop - 1lb of soy beans transformed to Natto (fermented soy beans)
Rating? 2 out of 5.  It did not get enough stickiness because of weak temperature control.

Long, long, long way to go...
