Luca

Since 2017

Luca was born out of passion for all kinds of micro-organisms (in the lab and in the kithcen) and slow food.

Characteristics

Luca doesn't get overly excited too often but you can still count on it working as expected when starting a dough. This one is not in very frequent use but it always survives like a champion when chilled, usually doesn't even take too long to wake it up after a good rest.

Working method

1
Luca was created with water, wheat and rye. Since being born he's had a taste of so many flours in different types of breads; it looks like anything goes with this little fella. Although not completely immune to changes in our routines, he rarely needs major persuasion to do what you want. If you find it not delivering, though, it should be all cool to just let it sit tight and give it a warm hug
