Left Coast Sourdough


This loaf’s history dates to San Francisco and the California gold rush, when prospectors carried mixtures of flour and water in packets attached to their waists. The result was a fermented leavening agent and a chewy, tangy bread. Allegro’s liberal coast version is a traditional, long-fermented loaf which rises overnight in a banneton (wicker basket) for a distinctive patterned, thick crust and spongy, flavorful crumb.

Ingredients: Unbleached unbromated wheat flour, water, and salt
