Guess what day it is today. No, I know it’s Guy Fawkes but us Papes don’t think that’s funny. It’s my starter’s official birthday – 14 today!
I say official because it was obviously developing before but it’s first real outing was a 2K Classic I made for a friend’s birthday in 1999 and I remember the fireworks all around as we went to the party in West London.
Further more, on November 5th 2000 I obtained my rye starter from Andrew Whitley on a two day course at Melmerby – first bread course I ever did.
