Since 2015

I've baked bread for years, hearing much stories about the complex flavor of sourdough... I had to give that a try myself! After a first failure, due to time constraints, I decided to give it a second chance! Scared by all the timing constraints, I managed to bake my first loafs, and after a while I got grips on it and realized time is on my side :)

Characteristics

At first, I look quite timid, but once I get warmed up, I burst with power! I am very versatile, you can use met o make bread, pizza, focaccia, ciabatta, you name it and I am ready to do the job! I used to be more sour tasting, but I have matured and now my taste is milder, yet complex!
