Sourdough Hotel

Shortly after starting my sourdough starter, I saw this article on Bon Appetit magazine’s website about new words in the food and bev world. Just what I need!

Sourdough Hotel (noun):
“Let’s say you’re seriously into baking bread. You need to feed the sourdough more flour every day to maintain it,” Friedland says. “So, if you’re going on vacation for two weeks, your culture’s not going to be alive when you get back. You can bring it to a sourdough hotel, and they’ll give it a daily feeding for you. They generally house over 30 jars of starter, and the top shelf is labeled penthouse.” The first was in Stockholm at the Urban Deli where customers would pay three hundred Swedish krona (about $35) for each week of sourdough starter-sitting.
