      Last night I was with one of our forty local groups here in London. This particular sanga, as we call our groups, was at a suburban home in the shadow of the massive arch of the new Wembley Stadium, which dominates the skyline around here.

Here's some photos of my last sourdough adventure here in my Sydney kitchen, and some rationale behind sourdough as opposed to commercial yeasted bread.
