The Bread Geek Speaks!


My friend Olivia is getting me and a bunch of other friends into baking with natural yeast, aka sourdough, which is new for some and “again” for me. I did it for years but then seasons shifted and I got out of the habit.  With the near-apocalypse upon us, it is time to discover or rediscover the self-reliant and health-promoting skill of using natural yeast, since commercial yeast might not always be in stores.


Melissa Richardson, coauthor of the book at the top, hasn’t had her blog up for a while, to share her knowledge beyond her two books.

Her Facebook group hasn’t been active either, but she just posted a video in the group recently (March 31). In the video, she spoke about natural yeast baking during the pandemic! Yay!
