Making Sourdough Bread

IMG_4728

Kathy Jenks (my partner at Mentoring Standard) and I discussed our current work projects on Thursday as Kathy taught my son Paul how to make sourdough bread. We have been growing the yeast in our San Jose kitchen for the last week. She used the book Bread: A Baker’s Book of Techniques and Recipes by Jeffrey Hamelman (2012) as a reference.

Paul is a skilled ceramicist and his current classes at San Jose State University include both raku ware pottery and metal work, so kneading and moulding a loaf then baking it came easily to him. Future loaves will have a more regular shape, I am sure, but these tasted wonderful!
