My youngest sister is in culinary school now, and has surpassed me in all cooking skills save one: bread-making. Or, more specifically, working with sourdough. What can I say? It’s a hands-on process that requires practice. not that I’m a master, but I’ve got a head start in the bread area.
When she first made the decision to go to culinary school, she had just moved into her first real apartment, so I gave her some of my starter and some custom instructions to go with it. The instructions might explain why she killed the starter in the first month.
They might also make you giggle.
