The Happy Baker: Eddie from Belmore Lebanese Bakery

Eddie Zanbaka, owner of Belmore Lebanese Bakery, on the art and science of baking, growing up catholic in Lebanon, adjusting to life Down Under, the investment that changed his career and finding happiness in simplicity.

Belmore Lebanese Bakery specialises in made-to-order flatbreads and fatayars that Eddie has perfected from years of experience--with some help from a master Lebanese baker.

Special thanks to James Mcgowan of jamesmcgowanaudio.com for his help on this episode-- I had significant problems with the recording quality on this and thought it was going to be completely unusable, but he worked his magic and made the episode 1000 times better.

 Freshly baked, flakey and perfectly browned, and stuffed with a blend of halloumi and feta--not pictured is the perfect flat white that I drank with it. I recommend both!
