Bread – My China Legacy

This evening I taught a sourdough bread-making class to some friends. Every time I teach this I am made very aware of two things:

  1. I am a scatter-brain.
  2. If it’s so hard for me to bake and talk at the same time, whatever would possess me that I would think I can bake and talk and take photos at the same time??? It’s impossible.

Someday maybe I’ll be in the same location as my photographer-genius niece and I can make sourdough, she can take the photos, and then I can use her photos and do a decent photo-illustrated write-up about making sourdough bread. In the meantime, go watch the videos by the Amazing Mike at . That’s where I learned most of what I know anyway.

Here’s the link to my former post about starting a sourdough starter. It’s late tonight, but tomorrow I will post a photo of our sourdough loaf and a couple of sourdough or slow-rise recipes that I like.

winner-winner, chicken dinner 🙂


  1. We learned SO much! That was seriously such a fun night and so informative. THANK YOU for sharing your talent with us. I’ve been baking bread non-stop since. Still nothing as good as what you just whipped up in a minute, but I’m practicing. I’ve read your blog post like 5 times, to make sure I really know what I’m doing. 🙂
