WHERE TO AC­QUIRE STARTER

Food & Drink - - BASICS SOURDOUGH 101 -

If you know any­one who makes sourdough, ask them. The con­stant re­fresh­ing of a starter usu­ally in­volves throw­ing some away so they are likely happy to share. The bonus here is that you’ll also ac­quire a bread men­tor to an­swer all the ques­tions you will soon be ask­ing. The next best op­tion is to ask at ar­ti­sanal bak­eries and pizze­rias. Some­times they are will­ing to sell or give away a bit of starter (and you re­ally do only need a bit. A ta­ble­spoon is enough to get you started.) You can buy frozen or freeze-dried starter o the in­ter­net from a va­ri­ety of sources. Try: cul­ture­mother.ca, kingarthur­flour.com or carls­friends.net. To make your own starter, see page 94
