I have started to bake my own sourdough bread again. I used to do this all the time when we lived in Vienna, but I abandoned my starter when we moved and never got back on the train somehow. So we ate the mediocre offerings of Berlin´s bakeries and occasionally splurged on organic bread... which can cost you up to 5 EUR for half of a tiny loaf (yes, I am happy to pay more for organic stuff, but this is just ridiculous).
I´ve been thinking a lot about food lately. I´ve struggled with unexplained stomach problems since the beginning of this year. At times it isn´t easy to find anything I can tolerate. I found out though that industrial bread and anything that contains preservatives are very bad for me indeed. (Here are some insights on what is wrong with German industrial bread - sorry the video is only in German).
Anyway, all of this to say: Homemade bread is a good thing, and it´s not as difficult to make as it seems. Here´s a good introduction.
Also, Emma says hi. I love this little furball.
