#KingOfTheSourdough 2017

#KingOfTheSourdough 2017

Whether you are a top sourdough baker or have never baked a loaf, we want you to show us your sourdough creations.

We’re challenging you to bake your best sourdough loaf and upload your two photos (cut and whole) to be in with a chance of being hailed King or Queen of the Sourdough.

Every week we will announce a weekly winner. These sourdough champions will each receive a jar of our 61 year old sourdough starter*.

At the end of the eight weeks all you Sourdough Champions will be invited for a day of sourdough baking, sharing recipes, stories and tips at our Cookery School in Chipping Sodbury with Tom and Trevor Herbert and one of you will be declared the King or Queen of the Sourdough.

All you knead to do is upload two pictures of your finest baked sourdough loaf both whole and cut to our Sourdough Nation Facebook page.

Share these via Instagram, Twitter or Facebook using the hashtag #KingOfTheSourdough

It’s time for this years #KingOfTheSourdough, lets get baking.

#KingOfTheSourdough begins on Monday 8th May.

*We welcome entries from around the world, however we can only send our Sourdough Starter out to UK entrants (excluding highlands).
