One of my new year’s resolutions was to start a natural yeast starter (essentially a sourdough starter but, theoretically this should be less “sour”) following the process outlined in the new Tartine Bread book. Well, I’ve been faithfully feeding my little baby for over a week now and, so far, he seems happy, healthy, and on his way to leavening bread.
But I have a problem – given that I’ve welcomed this new member into my household, I feel that he needs a name. But I’m drawing a blank on cute names (uuum, “yeasty?”) for my starter.
So readers – I’m putting the word out to you! What should I name my bread starter? I’m referring to it as a “he” but I’ll take names of any gender (unisex are fine too).
Leave your suggestions in the comments! Thanks!
