Q: Why is some bread yellow?

I am worried about the yellow bread, I worry about it like my Chinese friends worry about something they haven't seen before, and you ask them to eat it e.g a toasted sandwich with tomato, cheese and ham on it!

I always thought it had something to do with egg in the ingredients. They sell the yellow bread and cakes in Chinese bakeries in Australia as well.

Yellow bread? Potato bread and rolls are kind of yellow back home, I don't think it is that strange.

Custard powder.

One of the ingredients of many baked goods here (to cater to the liking of sweet breads) is custard powder.

I've seen it added to "pizza" dough and just about everything else.

Look for it on the package: 吉士粉 - ji shi fen.

I guarantee you will see this on any "yellow bread" you find.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
