Welcome to the World of Sourdough Geek!

Hello and welcome, fellow sourdough enthusiasts! I’m John, the founder and chief baker here at Sourdough Geek. My journey into the magical world of sourdough started several years ago, and it’s been a fascinating and delicious adventure ever since. Nestled in the heart of Texas, my kitchen has become a laboratory where tradition meets innovation, all in the pursuit of the perfect sourdough loaf.

A Passion for Sourdough

My love for sourdough began not in a bakery, but in the pages of history. As a food historian, I was captivated by the ancient art of sourdough baking. The idea that a simple mixture of flour and water, left to the devices of nature, could create such diverse and flavorful breads was nothing short of miraculous to me. This passion quickly turned into an obsession, and soon, I was nurturing my own sourdough starter, affectionately named “Dough Vinci.”

The Birth of Sourdough Geek

Sourdough Geek was born from a desire to share my passion and knowledge with the world. It’s a place where beginners can learn the basics, enthusiasts can dive deeper, and experts can explore new frontiers in sourdough baking. Here, you’ll find a wealth of resources, from detailed guides on starting and maintaining your sourdough starter to innovative recipes that push the boundaries of what sourdough can be.
