Dear Sourdough Community,
The internet sure is an amazing place.
I grew up in Northern California, deep in the Redwood forest. My mother used to bake bread every weekend especially during football season when my friends and I would all gather for a day of football and one of my mom's amazing feasts. Though she past a way not so long ago, the memory of her weekend ritual lives within me.
I moved to San Francisco and attended art school and while there my roommates and I ate tons of sourdough bread. I really didn't appreciate it then but I took a trip to visit my father a while back and I could not get enough of sourdough bread often eating more bread than anything else.
I now live in Amsterdam and have for many years. My mother's weekly bread baking ritual and my sourdough bread love affair have come together. I am not an experienced baker but I do love to cook. I am looking for a sourdough starter to help me get started on what I think will be a long and loving reunion. Are there any community members in the Amsterdam area who would be willing to share their starter with me? I am trying to start my own wild starter but after doing quite a bit of reading, it may be better if I gave myself a little bit of a break by just nuturing one that is already out there.
Any help you could extend me would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you sourdough community,
