If you have not started with sourdough, the time to do so is now!!!
I admit I am an UNCONVENTIONAL baker, who goes with her heart in terms of baking. I do not follow the traditional/typical baking conventions, norms. I believe in self-learning through experimentation. When it gives me good results, I am happy to share the results with you.
Started with sourdough a few months ago - the first bake with sourdough was focaccia that was so very sour that I literally started wondering why would people eat sourdough when it was too sour in taste (they say, thus the name - sourdough).
But when you take something to heart and wish to be better at what you do everytime, you LEARN and UNLEARN a lot many things.
Now that I am experimenting with sourdough and learning from experience, my SOURDOUGH is no longer SOUR.
It is the BEST thing on earth to learn and grab.
BELIEVE YOU ME, friends. If you start with sourdough, you will never return to using commercial yeast even. The best thing (apart from a sourdough starter being your homegrown baby yeast), it is a NEVER-ENDING story.
