Ive been making sourdough bread for a couple of months. With each baking session I learn a bit more and we get to eat my experiments. Recently, I posted a picture of two loaves on Instagram tagging it #sourdough and other similar tags.  I was surprised when I received a comment from a sourdough baker in Maui.  I immediately started following him on Instagram and looked back at the pictures he posted–mostly of bread.  A few days ago someone commented on his bread picture asking for his recipe.  He replied with his recipe in the next comment and I jotted it down.  Yesterday, I baked bread using his recipe.  I had to add more water as it’s less humid here than in Hawaii, but otherwise the bread  came out great.

The best part is that the yield was 4 loaves instead of the two I normally get.  This is what’s left of the first loaf after we all sampled it–some of us may have sampled it several times.  I have to post a picture of my “Maui” sourdough on Instagram so he can see it. It’s so cool that two people, thousands of miles apart, who share a common interest, can connect, and, in my case, learn from each other.
