Sourdough September invites the world to revel in the amazing alchemy of crafting as little as flour, water and salt into delicious, nutritious Real Bread
The annual, international celebration of genuine sourdough, and the people who make it is back for the seventh year running.
The Real Bread Campaign is again rallying loaf lovers worldwide for a whole month dedicated to the oldest (and many people say the best) way of leavening a loaf.
Life’s sweeter with sourdough!
On social media, #SourdoughSeptember is celebrated by thousands of people around the planet posting photos of loaves they’ve baked or bought.
Please keep your #WeAreRealBread #sourdoughselfie pix coming to help us show the world the many and varied FACES behind the rise of Real Bread. Here are some examples.
This year, the Real Bread Campaign is also encouraging novices to post and tag their photos with:
If you'd be happy for us to publish and share your happy baker photos (either of you or of classes you've run, with the permission of people in the pix) please email them to email@example.com
At its simplest, genuine sourdough is made using just three ingredients. From these, novice home bakers and true artisans alike can nurture the yeasts and bacteria naturally present in flour to foster a thriving sourdough starter culture. It’s this microbial magic that, given sufficient time, makes dough rise and may have other benefits.
The Real Bread Campaign encourages everyone to say no to sourfaux: loaves marketed as sourdough but made using baker’s yeast and/or food additives. In the UK, there is no legal definition of many bakery marketing terms, meaning there is little to nothing to protect shoppers from being misled by the misuse of this and wholegrain, freshly-baked, and artisan.
The Real Bread Campaign is run by the food and farming charity Sustain. People can support the charity’s work by joining the Campaign at: www.realbreadcampaign.org
