Every German who had been far away from home (“Dahoim”) knows it: The first things for which one longs are the “Brezeln” and a good baked bread. My family was so nice and included me in the project “Tastes of Danube”.
In this was I had received on the 80th Birthday of my Godmother Annemie in Essen a package with the two small jars in it. Margret Zender had brought the sour dough to my aunt and gave it to me together with a homemade coffee liqueur form which I first thought that it is part of the project. 🙂 After lookinginto the jats I understood that it was all about bread.
I brought the sour dough to the baker from Ayung – a wood – oven baker situated on the outskirts of Sapporo at the foot of the mountain Hakkenzan. Ayung bakes sometimes bread for our catering using regional organic products and natural yeast. I knew that she would become interested in baking a bread for the first time with sour dough. So she baked one and brought it to our annual event, the Candle Night with Solar-Live-Concert.
We were curious…
… and afterwards excited.

Also in the week after the event Ayung had the bread made of sour dough in her bakery. She cut it in slices and sold it per gram per slice.
