A collection of sourdough starters and the stories behind them.

For each starter its story and a recipe is collected, along with the owners reflection on how much their starter is worth in either monetary or emotional value. Once collected, the starter is dried which keeps the sourdough lactobacilli bacteria at rest until you wake them up again to bake with.

Anyone with a sourdough starter can take part and join the network. It investigates how to use existing platforms of knowledge to create new social relationships. The project is under constant development as new forms of information and contacts are established.

"This sourdough was started from the oranges that had been organically grown by my friend’s father in Odawara. He started his orange farming after his retirement and I’m sure he had a lot of difficulties in the beginning. I believe that his generation of men focused on work until retirement and only then felt free to explore other things. It’s difficult to put a price on the sourdough considering all the hardships in his life and his devotion to the oranges."
