Horacio

Since 2013

Sourdough and similar bread has a long tradition in my country (Czech republic) but the bread quality has been lowering except for some new artisanal bakeries. When I moved to the US, finding decent bread was barely possible and I found one of my biggest passions!

Characteristics

Horacio is Czech-American, after series of unsuccessful attempts back at my homeland to keep donated starters alive I started to live in the US and since I couldn’t find any rye starters already prepared, I had to make my own and that one just survived! He’s been with us for about 5 years now, keeping me company. We make loafs of bread of all sorts and also waffles!
