Sourdough bread has experienced a real resurgence in popularity in recent times amongst the bread lovers of Ireland. You would certainly be hard pressed to find a store, supermarket or café worth its salt that does not stock some form of this finest of breads. Possessing a slightly chewy crust and a soft moist crumb, the bread is marvellously versatile, working well for everything from gourmet sandwiches to buttered toast and of course everything in between. Furthermore, recent research has also indicated that the slow fermentation process of the yeast during the baking of sourdough is beneficial to the digestive system – breaking the stereotypical negative impression of white bread.
