Say no to sourfaux!
The Real Bread Campaign is calling on Real Bread bakeries, baking schools and other additive-free fermentalists to make their plans for this year’s annual, international celebration of genuine sourdough, and the people who make it.
For the seventh year running, the Real Bread Campaign is rallying bread lovers worldwide for a whole month dedicated to the oldest (and many people say the best) way of leavening a loaf.
At its simplest, genuine sourdough is made using just three ingredients. This year’s Sourdough September will revel in the amazing alchemy of crafting just flour, water and salt into delicious, golden Real Bread. Using this holey trinity, novice home bakers and true artisans alike can nurture the yeasts and bacteria naturally present in flour to foster a thriving sourdough starter culture, whose microbial magic makes the dough rise.
Real Bread bakeries, baking schools and other organisers are encouraged to start planning classes, tastings, feasts, sourdough starter giveaways and more now.
The Real Bread Campaign is run by the food and farming charity Sustain.
