Beautifully presented in a custom-made gift box are 13 items that will get you baking perfect sourdough bread from scratch, and last a lifetime
The Crumb kit makes a wonderful gift for birthdays and Christmas, and is ideal as a shared wedding present for couples who love to cook.
NOTE: If the Crumb kit is a gift please be aware the starter needs to be refrigerated within 7 days and fed within 14 days. To arrange your preferred delivery date please email us via the 'ask seller' button and we will arrange dispatch accordingly.
Each component has been carefully selected to get you making sublime loaves from day one with the minimum of fuss. Our hundreds of new converts to home-made sourdough are testament to how foolproof it is.
The kit includes our unique sourdough starter - a culture of wild yeasts that will last forever with a little care.
It comes with all the hardware and the ingredients to get you baking straight away, as well as detailed instructions.
Don't be fooled by cheap imitations that only offer half the kit. The Crumb kit offers serious bang for your buck.
We provide a full personalised gift message service. Your personal message will be printed on 250gsm ivory card and included in the package.
1 x Sourdough starter - a culture of wild natural yeasts packed in a lidded bowl that will be its permanent home
2 x Beautiful natural wicker proving baskets with calico liners. Don't be fooled by cheaper alternatives that only offer one proving basket - almost all sourdough bakers realise it makes far more sense to make two loaves at once
1 x Baker's lame - a sharp blade for scoring the top of your loaf
1 x Cotton proving towel - to cover you loaves while they rise
1 x Specialist metal baking sheet - sourdough is cooked directly on this metal sheet, not in a bread tin like commercial loaves
1 x Metal flour scoop
1 x Dough scraper - things can get rather sticky
1 x Spray bottle - to increase humidity in the oven and provide a superior crust
1 x Oven-proof ramekin - a ceramic dish to provide a reservoir of water in the oven while you bake, again to ensure maximum humidity
1 x Starter flour - the first two feeds for the sourdough starter
1 x Bread flour - our signature blend of very strong Canadian white bread flour and strong organic wholemeal, sufficient to make your first two loaves
1 x Spelt flour - a specialty flour that gives your loaf a real flavour lift
1 x Semolina - this is used not for flavour, but to help you uncooked loaves slide off the breadboard and into the oven.
