Pertti only got his name today — but he has been my trusted friend and colleague for many years already. I grew and raised him from scratch, and he still still constantly amazes me by making my bread rise beautifully and taste delicious. (Actually I'm not 100% sure of the year I brought him to life as I didn't think to write it down... But the estimate is close to reality)
Pertti is a rugged, strong guy: a starter that despite (or maybe because of) years of mistreatment and searching for its limits (days on the kitchen counter without food, weeks in the fridge untouched) has grown into a reliable partner who creates bread with a pleasant, not overly sour flavor and a great rise.
