Ella Bella ( She, the Beauty)

Since 2016

I have a son, now he’s twelve but I never wanted to give him that fake bread that you can get on almost every corner in my country: BIMBO. So I decided to learn. First using yeast then I discover the Masa Madre and that’s a way of no return. I still learning, mainly from other amateurs bakers of that wonderful group on Facebook called Perfect Sourdough and of course some other books.

Characteristics

Well... I have to say mine is the only sourdough I’ve ever know, touch or smell. So I’m not so sure which are hers unique characteristics. Bubbly, loudly, funny, very strong ( at least I think so) loyal and of course... she likes to brake my jars!
