This week on the Gardenerd Tip of the Week Podcast we bend the ear of Guy Frenkel, LA’s own sourdough mad scientist. His popular Instagram feed shares picture-perfect, wildly-colored loaves of bread made from ancient grains. Guy is an administrator for the Facebook Group, Perfect Sourdough, and is an ambassador for the sourdough library in Belgium.
During our chat, Guy reveals a few of the ingredients he uses to create his beautiful loaves. We also found out his secret to perfect stenciling. Listen in and learn a thing or two.
