Ambarabà

Since 2015

My husband and I decided that we wanted to eat REAL bread and leavened food, the ones that you can smell from far away, the kind of bread that our ancestors used to bake, the kind of bread that sings when you take it out of the oven and that you can store for weeks. It began at home, for our family, it turned into a life passion and it is becoming my job.

Characteristics

My sourdough is 3 years old and since I created it I use to grow plants on my balcony, especially lemons, geranium and aromatic plants. From spring to autumn I use to feed Ambarabà with open doors and windows so it grew with rosemary, basil, flower and fruity aromas and still today you can feel them when you taste it.

I take some of my sleeping starter, I add water and stir until it melts, then I add flour and mix until the dough is smooth. I let it ferment until it doubles its volume at 27°C.

Working method

1
Ambarabà was born 3 years ago, from water and wheat flour. The hydration I chose to keep is 75% so it isn't solid nor completely liquid. After his birth I mixed it with a Neapolitan starter and one from San Francisco, both fed with white wheat flour.
