Sourdough September: Time for Sourdough Toast & Tea Together!

By | news | No Comments

It’s that sourdough time of year again! September sees the annual celebration of the purest leavened bread. One that contains just 3 simple ingredients as a base: flour, water, salt. As a supporter of the Real Bread Campaign, this year Planet Leicester Bakers is promoting ‘Sourdough Toast and Tea Together Events’ for community groups and charities. Read all about it in the info-graphic below, which you can download HERE.  It’s an opportunity to get together with others and chat about our food and our bread – the stuff of life!  Some simple information is on offer to get the conversations going!

We are talking about REAL Sourdough – not the stuff you find with a ‘sourdough’ label in many shops and supermarkets. It is made slowly over at least 24 hours from wild Leicester yeast – Starter Bob – who is 2.5 years old and counting.  If you have a keen bread baker in your group they can go for option 2, or you can arrange greatly reduced price 400g toasting loaves from Planet Leicester Bakers.  Lots of ways to get in touch – so drop me a line!
