Thinking a lot about fermentation lately after watching the Michael Pollan "Cooked" series on Netflix. It got me thinking about bread and more specifically how I ought to try making some. So this week I started a sourdough culture and I'm trying to get it to grow. A whole new challenge for me. So far I think I've pretty much screwed it up, but I'm not ready to toss it out yet. I think I can revive her! Maybe if I give her a name. Some kind of wild, spirited woman....Matilda. I looked it up and it means "Mighty in Battle." She will flourish against all odds. And sadly with me leading the charge, she will be challenged. Godspeed, Matilda. I will keep you posted on her progress.
