With South Africa jumping on the baking wagon during lockdown, there’s never been a better time to learn how to bake your own bread – and thankfully, there are smart companies like Motherdough to help you on your way.
Of course, there’s bread and then there’s sourdough bread. How great would it be to be making your own sourdough, from your own starter? The thing is, anyone can start a sourdough culture from scratch. The challenge is in getting it to the point of being stable and predictable (or for us novices, just to keep it alive, to be honest.)
That’s where Motherdough comes in. When you buy a Motherdough kit, you receive not only their 101 year old wild yeast starter – but all the expertise you need to be able to use it. The Motherdough community will help you to maintain this starter in peak condition, provide you with basic recipes, help rescue your starter when she’s fading, and inspire you to try new things in the kitchen.
Sure, you could get some of your baker friend’s starter for free. But the thing about Motherdough is that it actually comes with a guarantee. If your starter happens to die within the first 60 days of purchase, Motherdough will send you a new culture, for free.
Hopefully it won’t come to that, because the people are Motherdough are very confident about the abilities of their starter, which they believe is more reliable, stable, adaptable and resilient than most cultures. And of course there is the taste test – the Motherdough culture guarantees a more pleasantly flavoured product.
Sounds like a plan to us – so order yours and start baking today. Visit www.motherdough.co.za for more information.
