Valentina

Since 2012

I took a Mexican bread diploma at Centro Culinario Ambrosía in Mexico City and the head chef explain to us how does masa madre work, something inside me felt the need to explore. That year (2012) my passion for sourdough awaked.

Characteristics

Valentina it's a very low maintenance sourdough. Somethimes I don't bake for a week or 2 and Valentina stays in the fridge without a problem. When I take it out, I try to refresh it every 12 hours for 2 times and then it's ready to make amazing bread. The consistency is like gelatinous and that's when she's ready to work.
