Sourdough Explained for Ratton Pantry

My love for bread was inspired early on by my Romanian grandmother. As a toddler I spent many mornings on her bread shop counter, right next to the steamy loaves. I was only 3 years old and to this day the memory is as fresh in my mind as the freshly baked bread enjoyed by my grandmother’s whole village.

I have lived in London for the past 6 years, but I grew up and spent more than half of my life in Romania, where my family still lives today.

My sourdough journey started much later, almost 4 years ago, by chance. I was in my friend’s kitchen when she baked one of her first sourdough loaves. That was for me the moment of realisation. I realised that making great bread at home is something totally achievable. It was amazing how this extraordinary thing can come out of two hands and 3 ingredients. I got some of my friend’s starter and this is how it all began.
