10 Essential Tools from Tala for Making Sourdough Bread at Home


This month is Sourdough September, organised by the lovely people at the Real Bread Campaign.

Their aim is simple, to encourage more people to buy or make their own genuine sourdough bread at home. It is not only one of the tastiest bread you can possibly bake but also one of the trickiest and therefore a great challenge for a home baker!

This month, we want you to master the craft of sourdough in the comfort of your own kitchen. To get you started, we’ve sifted through our essential bread-making tools and accessories and put together our top 10!
