Sourdough Explained

We bake small batches of sourdough available for collection from 9 am. Baguettes ready at 9:30 am each day. Customers can see and experience the process when picking up the freshest bread in Whistler. We make our bread by hand in the open plan kitchen and serve it whilst still warm.

Although the ingredients are simple, the approach consists of ever changing temperatures, timing and measurements due weather and humidity fluctuations.

Organic flour, water and salt combine, and amylase (an enzyme in the flour) begins to break down the starch molecules into sugar. Wild yeast, which is naturally found in flour, and friendly bacteria in the air called lactobacilli, begin to feed off the sugar.

Lactic acid is produced by the lactobacilli, creating a mildly sour taste not present in commercially made bread. During fermentation, the yeast dies and carbon dioxide bubbles are released, causing a spongy texture and noticeable holes in the crumb.

Some research suggests that sourdough is actually lower in gluten than commercially made bread.
