Hello playmates,

I was recently converted to sourdough bread-making by a charming couple from the Iffley Road. It's hard work but it has it's advantages - for one thing, after a couple of days of rye bread my turds are truly kingly! And so authentic, with organic, stoneground flour and slow fermentation!

Now, last weekend I made a fougasse for Lady Cannell which was a flop (as so many thing are for her; another story for another day, perhaps) on 2 counts: the leaven was based on my 2-year old starter (which has become, like me, sour and flaccid), and since I misread the label on their stoneground flour in Waitrose, a store I'm unfamiliar with being heretofore a denizen of only Asda's drinks shelves, the flour was wholemeal. Whoever thought of a flat wholemeal fougasse? Sadly, being retired now, I have no time to fuss about in shops reading labels and grabbed the first bag that said stoneground. Who knows, I may have been distracted by one of their 'trademark MILFs' although this was Abingdon, so that's hardly fucking likely.

Anyway, I have ordered some Northumbrian organic white homeground flour from Amazon but I would rather patronise a local supplier, if possible. I'm sure of lot of you are into sourdough so please let me know if you know a local supplier.

Toodle pip!

Thanks.

BTW, I is told Wessex is all roller-ground, which their packaging & website also supports.

Will check out the other. Thanks again.

I’ve been making sourdoughs from the same starter for about 12 years. I Waitrose own brand Canadian Strong flour, or good old Allinsons. The co-op one is pretty good. And yes, Added Ingredients in Abingdon are good too.

I'm intolerant to bread πŸ˜” this thread isn't helping, and as a mod I can't ignore it, I have to read it just in case you use naughty words (or worse, use lots of capital letters) πŸ˜”

I bloody love bread... It doesn't love me back πŸ˜”

No need to make a wholemeal out of it.

I cook a lot and want to start baking my own bread. Any advice on the best method for something like sour dough?. (Definitely the best toast out there imho)

Yes. Buy The Handmade Loaf by Dan Lepard. Completely changed the way I bake bread.

Or if you run out of time/enthusiasm after a while, get a Panasonic breadmaker and follow the instructions! Never use a bread-mix though they are expensive and not as good as fresh ingredients.
