We get asked all the time about sourdough, from what it is to how its made.

Sourdough is simply a bread which is made using natural fermentation, using yeasts found naturally in the flour and in the air. This is done by creating a “Starter” (although there are many names for it) which is fermented over days, weeks, months, even years to develop a flavour and aroma the baker wishes to use. It can be a strong sourdough flavour or more fruity depending on the bakers style.

The difference between a sourdough bread and a yeasted bread is that a yeasted bread is made using commercial yeast.

Some people often tell us they bought a sourdough loaf from a supermarket and didn’t like it, this video will tell you why………

There are plenty of good reasons why you should choose a sourdough loaf, come and talk to us if you would like to know more. (Us bakers are pretty passionate about our sourdough!)

Well its been a year in the making, mainly because we’ve been so busy this past year baking, running courses and building our cafe next door that we’ve only just managed to get round to getting a professional (locally sourced) website live. Thanks to So Marketing for a stunning new website!! Matt
