Since 2016

In India,people love all sorts of bread except sour breads. So naturally my tongue was desperate to try sour or bitter breads. I thought within myself...is it possible? ....So i Googled and voila!!! Found the existence of sourdough bread and the hero of that bread ,it's Starter. So I prepared my unique starter Madira and started to make all kinds of sour baked items. It's food porn

Characteristics

Madira is sour, bitter and alcoholly in taste. Her texture runs from runny to silly putty. I don't prefere the Biga texture.
