Since 2011

Working with a woodfired brick oven with access to fresh flour to mill myself, during my first summer job in culinary school. I will admit the oven caught my eye first, but when the bread started coming out edible, I knew I was hooked for life. Sourdough bread has been my full time job since 2009.

Characteristics

Uniquely forgiving of a negligent feeding schedule during off days/weeks. Strong leavening, balanced flavor without being overly tangy or funky.
