Remember, remember Sourdough September

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.

The power of three

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.

September is also a time for everyone to say no to sourfaux by baking or buying at least one loaf of genuine sourdough and sharing it on social.

Time to get doughing!

Real Bread bakeries, baking schools and other organisers are encouraged to start planning classes, tastings, feasts, sourdough starter giveaways and more now. They can add details of their sourdough shenanigans to the Real Bread Campaign calendar.
