  • What is Sourdough?
    Sourdough is not one particular type of bread but a term given to breads and bakes made with naturally occurring or wild yeasts rather than a single strain or commercial one. It is the oldest form of baking. The fresh or dried yeast bought in a shop or bakery has been specifically farmed to get a strong yeast strain to leaven the dough more quickly. This type of baking has only been happening since industrialisation during the nineteenth century. Sourdough or wild yeast is a collection of thousands of different yeast strains found within the flour and environment particular to the baker using it. This means dough takes longer to rise and ferment hence giving sourdough its unique texture, depth of flavour and easier digestibility. It's also why each baker’s sourdough is different to another’s and we each have our own subtle but distinctive variations. In Holland there is actually a sourdough library to try and capture and record all the unique sourdough leavens out in the world!
