I am so excited, I can barely contain myself. What you see here is 9 ounces of sourdough starter, given to me this morning by a new friend who recently moved from Savannah to Austin. Packed on ice, her beloved starter made the journey with her. It was lovingly grown using the directions in Nancy Silverton's Breads from the La Brea Bakery seven years ago, so it has developed some amazing flavor! I can hardly wait to bake!
