“The simplest definition of sourdough comes from the dictionary, to leaven, especially fermented dough from a previous batch, rather than fresh yeast, to start the bake. But sourdough is so much more than simply a way to make bread rise. It's an enticing, tangy flavor, just a snapshot of American culinary history, and a classic ingredient in everything from pancakes to pretzels. It's a part of the family for its aficionados—a living ingredient that thrives on flour and water and love. And most of all, it's an endlessly fascinating subject for bakers of all stripes. From the beginner first picking up a bowl and spoon to the veteran who's kept a starter happy and lively for 30 years, sourdough reaches out and grabs our imagination, reminding us that the simplest beginning can lead to magic.” — King Arthur Flour
