Episode 2.26 Getting Deeply Into Sourdough with Emily Hoven

It’s hot as heck in Vancouver (and, apparently, most of the world) right now, but in this episode I’m harkening back to cooler days (i.e. May) when the ever-delightful Emily Hoven visited me to talk (and make) sourdough. We chat about the ethics of care, sourdough science, the new domesticity, and why everyone just wants to move to a commune in the woods. I also took some short videos of Emily explaining (and modelling) aspects of sourdough-making, which you can check out below. The quality is… not great. But you know what are super high quality? These links!

  1. Emily, years ago I got some sourdough starter from a woman in, I believe it was Edmonton, Alberta of a lovely starter named Ralph. I had and used him for years until a guest cleaned my refrigerator while I was a work as a “delightful” surprise for me. Yes. She threw Ralph down the sink and washed his jar! I have some where the woman’s name and email. She has not had any Ralph for years, apparently.
    Just thought you might find the tale of interest. With good wishes, Elizabeth
