I've found a kindred spirit

Over the past couple of weeks I've been trawling around looking for bread recipes, as I wait for my copy of Rose Beranbaum's Bread Bible to arrive. This is how I found my current favourite blog ~ Bread Basketcase. Marie in Minnesota is baking her way through the very same book. Every recipe. She's a great writer and is turning out some fab looking bread.

She inspired me today to give the Sourdough a go. So, lurking in Chris Manfield's Spice I found a recipe for a sourdough starter based on Lionel Poilâne's methods.

So I've made this gooey mess which is living under a damp tea towel in the loungeroom for a couple of days. We shall see!



And the other photo is the cat. Her eyes were looking particularly opal like so I thought I'd share.

Hi kestypes, bread making scares me quite a bit. I am so impressed by the fact that you made your own starter! Good on you.

Also just letting you know I have tagged you for the recipe meme : )

Mum & I are sitting in dark shimmery grey of a Tasmanian late afternoon, cold outside - warm inside, Mum remembers when she saw her first sourdough loaf in San Francisco in 1975, we love this site Kerrie.
