Sourdough Bread

May 4, 2018

Bread, in one form or another, has been one of the main staples for the man from earliest times. The trade of the baker is one of the oldest crafts in the world.

Once you tried it, you'll be asking for it to come back to you every night. And day. And in between.. Your life will never be the same. Trust me, you can't get enough of the hot date (slice). So, are you…
