The Sourdough Podcast
Inspiring conversations from leaders and innovators throughout the sourdough community. Hear the stories behind the bakers, authors, growers, millers, artists, and other creative minds that you've always wondered about.
Emily Buehler, Author of Bread Science
On this episode, Emily Buehler, author of Bread Science: The Chemistry and Craft of Making Bread, joins us to help unravel the mysteries of naturally fermented bread. She shares her journey from scientist to baker to becoming an author and publisher, writing and working with renowned bakers like Peter Reinhart and Francisco Migoya. She helps explain why enzymes are the unsung heroes of fermentation, addresses some common misconceptions surrounding sourdough, and answers listener questions on the topics of water, refrigeration, proofing, and starters.
Rose Lawrence of Red Bread
On this episode, Rose Lawrence, baker, chef, and owner of Red Bread, joins me from her home in Los Angeles. Rose reflects on her beginnings as a Cottage Food baker in Venice, California and how the artisan bread movement has changed since the passage of the California Homemade Food Act (a law which she played an active role in bringing about). She gives advice and resources for home bakers looking to take the leap to becoming a cottage food operator and shares her fermentation mantra for anyone out there feeling a little overwhelmed on their sourdough journey.
