Big Momma

I just got my hands on some sourdough starter or "mother" from a generous foodie acquaintance. I love to bake bread and am good with yeast, but have absolutely no experience with sourdough wrangling. I love the flavor of sourdough, and was inspired by hearing Michael Pollan interviewed on NPR yesterday...he waxed enthusiastic about the superior health benefits of fermented foods. I look forward to the adventure!

Your loaf looks great and thanks for the link to Sourdough International - I have been looking for authentic SF sourdough which I LOVE and have not been able to find in Los Angeles through the usual stores. I have the La Brea bakery cookbook, but now I have a source for the starter.
