Stevie Jesus

Since 2017

I was baking yeasted bread and then broke my leg playing roller derby and had a lot more time on my hands! I bought a sourdough loaf from a sourdough bakery and started experimenting, now I'm hooked!

Characteristics

I use a Dutch oven and this seems to get a good oven spring, the crust is usually quite dense with a good crunch and the crumb has big air pockets and is quite moist, almost like a potato bread in texture.
