What can we say? We love bread, and our feelings are well summed up in two quotes.
"It isn't bread that feeds you; it is life and the spirit that feed you through bread." --Angelus Silesius, in Der Cherubinische Wandersmann
And we feel there is no better bread than bread made with sourdough. As Dr. Ed Wood summed it up:
"10,000 years later, and there's no better way to raise bread!"
In the beginning all risen breads were sourdough, or naturally leavened, breads, and there is no real reason they can't be today. The move to using commercial baking yeast was brought about to save time, not to make better bread. With practice, you can get the taste, crumb and rise you want from sourdough.
We hope you will join us in making better bread. Sourdough bread.
