This ultimate sourdough bread making kit has everything you need to make delicious sourdough bread including an authentic sourdough starter from an artisan baker.
Sourdough breadmaking has never been more popular and what better way to learn than from an artisan baker. Self confessed bread addict Nir has been baking sourdough bread for a living for over ten years and has specially developed this kit with beginners in mind.
The kit comes with enough sourdough starter and flour for two complete bakes. You can also opt not to bake the second loaf, and instead refresh the sourdough yourself so you can continue to nurture and use the starter for bread making indefinitely. Instructions on how to do this are included in the kit.
PLEASE NOTE: Based on customer feedback, we have also added the option to allow you to buy the gift in advance and let the recipient send for the fresh sourdough starter when they are ready to bake. We will include the empty sourdough starter jar in the kit with a unique code inside. To send for the live starter, the recipient simply emails the code and address to send the fresh starter to, and it will arrive a couple of days later. PLEASE NOTE THIS SERVICE IS AVAILABLE TO UK ADDRESSES ONLY, SO PLEASE DO NOT SEND THE KIT ON TO ANYONE OUTSIDE OF THE UK!
Fresh sourdough starter refills are also available on the website provided in the kit if you prefer not to worry about remembering to refresh your starter!
The starter we have developed for this sourdough kit is rye-based which gives the bread a lovely flavour and is also easy to work with as it is not as active a starter as ones made with white flour. This means unlike some other starters, you don't need to refresh it daily, around once a week is about right. We would describe it as a low maintenance starter, in our view ideally suited for beginners in sourdough bread making.
The finished bread itself is qute a dense bread as it is rye-based, delicously savoury and fantastic with butter and good cheese!
PLEASE NOTE: Kits sent with live sourdough starter will come with a label on the outside of the box that says to open immediatey so the recipient knows to place the starter in the fridge as soon as possible. We have tested the sourdough and have found that the starter is still active after 7 days, so as long as it is placed in the fridge on arrival and used within a week, all is well.
STOCK ISSUE: Please note due to a delivery delay with our wicker basket supplier, we have had to supplement the wicker proving basket with a plastic bread proving bowl. It comes with a muslin cover like the wicker basket and will do the job just as well, but will not exactly match the photo.
