Start making your own sourdough starter today!
A great sourdough bread starts with a great sourdough starter. That’s why we’ve partnered with the Sourdough School to create a starter-growing kit that includes everything you need to make your own delicious, bubbly, aerated sourdough bread at home.
Our starter is made with a wild yeast culture that can be traced back over 115 years. Vanessa sourced the original starter from a traditional local French bakery when she was a child, and she’s been cultivating and feeding it ever since.
The culture is a living collection of yeast strains, so it needs to be fed with high-quality flour once a week. This will ensure an endless source of yeast for your sourdough bread and pizzas.

Refresh your sourdough starter right away
Your starter will need to be refreshed as soon as you receive it. Use the specially selected flour that comes with your kit.
How to refresh your starter
- Remove the starter from the refrigerator.
- In a clean bowl, combine 1 part starter with 1 part flour and 1 part water.
- Mix until smooth.
- Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a lid.
- Let the starter sit at room temperature for 8-12 hours, or until it is bubbly and active.
- Once the starter is active, you can use it to make sourdough bread, pancakes, waffles, or other baked goods.
- Use the same type of flour that came with your starter. Using a different type of flour can alter the microbial composition of the starter and may affect its level of activity.
- Keep your starter in the refrigerator between uses. This will slow down the fermentation process and help your starter last longer.
- Refresh your starter every week or two to keep it active.
Enjoy your sourdough starter!
