I’m back from my holidays, and after two weeks in Thailand and Cambodia I return no more tanned (monsoon season is not the time to go if seeking sun) although slightly burnt after falling asleep on a sunbed on the one day we did receive sun; depleted of blood from the number of mosquitoes that … Continue reading A Guide to Sourdough Making By Someone Who Has Never Made Sourdough – Stage 3 (The Birth)
