I loved toast. Love to cook so bought a bread machine. Loathed it! Someone took me to La Brea Bakery that had just opened in Los Angeles. I wanted to make bread like that! Bought Silverton's book that summer and tried twice to make a starter. First time went bad. Second time worked.

Charakteristische Eigenschaften

For 4 loaves I start with 25oz starter, 2.4 lbs Spring Water, 4.4lbs Organic White Bread Flour, 1 cup Wheat Bran. After first mix, wait 20 mins, add 8tsps Sea Salt, mix higher speed, then add flavoring. Olives & Fresh Thyme or Lemon Zest and Fresh Rosemary or Fig Jam and Fennel Seeds or Fresh Dill and Chopped light sautéed Shallots. All are amazing.

It is so exciting to be a part of this wonderful movement of making sourdough bread from scratch. I have added milling grains for some of the breads I make and that is kind of thrilling.
