The Renaissance of Sourdough Bread

Sourdough bread is not just a fad that has taken over social media and every health food store under the sun. Sourdough bread is a part of my culture; it's what I grew up with, and it is far superior to any loaf of bread you'll ever try. Sourdough bread is the most natural way to eat bread. After all, it's been around for millennia (some say as far back as 10,000 BC), and until the introduction of commercial yeast, it was the only way to naturally leaven bread all across the world. Flour, water, salt, and time are what you need to make sourdough bread. Although it is not exactly that straightforward, these few simple ingredients turn into a symphony of exquisite flavours, lovely scents, and a dazzling golden sheen.
Sourdough bread is inexpressibly exquisite, with a profound flavour complexity. The little custardy pockets of dough inside are flawlessly uneven, with some large and some small, and cutting into the loaf and inspecting it in depth allows you to see the activity inside literally. The flavour is similar to yoghurt or sour cream, depending on how long it is fermented and which flour is used.
Every loaf is one-of-a-kind, remarkable in its own right, and deserving of consumption. There are no boundaries, and sourdough opens up a whole new world of creative possibilities for the baker. It is simply incredible. Try sourdough bread if you have not already. You can taste the flavours, the notes, and the passion after eating a slice of freshly baked sourdough bread without using industrial yeast or altered flours. Butter it up, let it sit for a few minutes to melt into every last crumb, and then eat it. Apart from the health benefits, I cannot emphasize how delicious sourdough bread is; it is truly the best way to prepare it. You will find a somewhat different method and way of making it in every corner of the world, but that is the beauty of it. This makes it unique by continuing a legacy older than any of us can understand, no matter where you live.
