Curious about sourdough but don’t know where to begin?
You’ve come to the right place! Meet Dillon! My personal sourdough starter.
It’s an offspring from a 10-year-old Australian starter (named Priscilla) which was a gift from my good friend Celia. It’s powerhouse strength has produced hundreds of delicious loaves including soft sandwich bread, hearth-style-boules, bagels, waffles, and SO MUCH MORE!
For those of you who don’t know the story, I didn’t decide to just wake up and bake sourdough bread one day. I had been admiring a particular blog from afar called Fig jam and Lime Cordial, where Celia documented the trials and tribulations of sourdough baking. Her bread looked to-die-for, and I was completely in awe of her infectious enthusiasm (at one point, she almost had me knitting homemade dishcloths too, okay?!).
Eventually, through our blogs, we became close friends and she mailed me some of her starter. And I’m sure glad she did- because without Priscilla, and of course the generosity of Celia herself, Artisan Sourdough Made Simple would not exist.
And now, I’m excited to share this journey with you.
What You’ll Receive
I’m offering my starter in small, handcrafted batches. It comes in dried form with activation instructions, and a few tips for ongoing care. Because of its age it’s considered a mature starter, meaning its reliable strength will typically produce a successful rise- this is super helpful for beginners. And the cool thing? Because it comes in dried form, you can activate it whenever you want. Just store it in a cool, dark place and it will last several months and up to one year- the pantry is a perfect spot.
The cost is $10 ea. + $3.50 shipping. I dry the starter myself, hand pack each and every order, and include a FREE autographed book plate (it’s a 3×5 sticker) to place inside your copy of Artisan Sourdough Made Simple. As of right now, I’m only shipping within the US.
