Since 2017

This was made for Nouri Restaurant. It's a little hard to find good sourdoughs or artisanal bakeries in Singapore, hence we decided to make it ourselves. I have to say, it's produces one of the best sourdough breads in Singapore.

Characteristics

She's bubbly, fruity and slightly alcoholic.
