The secret to the perfect baguette? Flour, water and a 130-year-old starter dough
David Fhima of Fhima's Minneapolis on going back to the basics and remembering our roots
David Fhima came to the United States with only $100 in his pocket and a jar of his mother’s starter dough.
Thirty years later, he’s still using his now generations old “mother dough” to make the bread in his bakeries and restaurants.
He gave Appetites a tour of his kitchen at Fhima’s Minneapolis and shared the story of his family’s starter dough, the recipe for “Hanukkah-style French toast” and why food is all about the basics.
