My bread for you
Bread has always been a passion of mine, it relaxes me, it has taught me to know how to wait, for me it is like an oriental philosophy: it makes me concentrate and so I abstract myself from the rest of the world. I entered this world a little at a time, for goodies, and then I became demanding with the choice of flour, my sourdough, trying to reach a perfection to which one never arrives, but to which it is good to tend. In this site you will find the recipes divided by type of yeast, but also a section dedicated to great leavened products, because they have a special place in my heart. Then you will also find a series of small articles on the world of flour and bread because the universe that revolves around bread it’s really varied or rather colorful. Ah, besides bread, I have another great passion, the kitchen, if you want, you can go and take a look at my site Pizzaforbreakfast.

Sourdough is a living being and as such must be fed. It needs flour and water so that the bacteria contained within it can turn the starch of the flour into sugar and start leavening. Depending on how often you use sourdough and depending on where you keep it (in the fridge or at room temperature), it can be refreshed every day and up to about every 5 days.
Manitoba flour is a soft wheat flour which is named after the Manitoba region in Canada. Its main characteristic is that it is very rich in proteins, that are useful to improve the stability and leavening of bread dough.
