Hello from Belgium

Hello  bread lovers

Looks like a nice place to be here. Just discovered this website through a friend quester Jarkko from Finland. Myself i'm Karl. I manage the only sourdough library in the world. Up to date we host 102 starters from 19 countries. 

To detect the starters that deserve a place in this library we created a website where you can register it online. Already more than thousand recipes are posted registered their starter. 

Through the project we discover more about the biodiversity in sourdough. The regional differences or similarities and much more. We are only at the beginning of this incredible journey. So every help is welcome.

Thanks. I know the Rob Dunn project! On top of that we work together on another project.

Last summer we conducted a DNA experiment together to check if the baker has influence on the life in its sourdough. 

Im awaiting the results, but very soon we will start communicating about the outcome. to be followed on my instagram @the_sourdough_librarian, the blog section on www.questforsourdough.com and the Facebook page of the quest for sourdough.

Regards,

Karl

Bonjour, Karl,

Welcome to TFL! I was getting ready to make Sakadane and bought a jar of KOJI (the malted rice) not long before watching your Sakura An Pan movie. It's exciting to see the city we just visited and the process of making those cute little pans.  Nice to have you here!
