Name of Sourdough BreadThe name of sourdough bread is derived from the slightly sour taste derived from the lactic acid produced by the lactobacilli and yeast during the proving or fermentation process of the bread.
Sourdough ToastOne of the biggest revelations of experiencing sourdough bread for the first time is when you try toasting it. Sourdough toast is unbelievable! The open crumb structure produced by the lactobacilli and the flavour of the bread produces a toast that is unrivalled to any other type of bread in my humble opinion. Try stilton on toast on sourdough bread and you will think that you have died and gone to heaven!
