Yeast

Haven't a clue what galangal is, or need to know what to use if you can't buy creme fraiche locally? We're sure our knowledgeable members will be able to point you in the right direction...

Yeast

Please can anyone help me - if a recipe states 10g fresh yeast what is the equivalent if I use dried yeast?

I don't have any in my cupboard at the mo, but it does usually state on the box.

I would use a teaspoon. It's not actually too critical because once yeast is activated it doubles quite quickly in waem conditions. I only use 1/2 tsp in my bread machine regardless of the size of loaf and it always works fine.

You can freeze fresh yeast in usable portions. Roughly speaking you replace the given amount of fresh with half as much dried.

The other poster is correct about less being more. You get a better flavour and result by using a small amount of yeast and allowing a slower, longer rising time than you do with more yeast and a quick rise.
