#7 – Sourdough

“That led to bakers yeast, which was a household item by 1900… Then we just seem to have gone completely downhill from there, to this place where on the shelves are these loaves made in a process that, if you showed a baker from three or four hundred years ago, they just wouldn’t recognize, with all these additives in it… And people just think that’s bread.” – Alison, in Episode 7, Sourdough

“You basically need to be able to stir a spoon in a bowl. That’s about the skill level that’s needed.” – Andrea

Each step I’ve taken away from that 9 to 5 life slowly slowly slowly to intentionally build something else had rewarded me in ways that tell I’m on the right path. This feels in accordance with my nature far more than what I used to do and how I used to live.” – Alison
