The new Sourdough Kit is available from RRP £59.95 and is a must have for sourdough supremos and first time bakers alike.

Bertie Matthews, the dynamic young Managing Director of Matthews Cotswold Flour comments: “Matthews Cotswold Flour is a family business that has been trading grain and milling flour in the heart of the Cotswolds since the 1800s. We work closely with a team of artisan bakers and listen carefully to our customers. In response to their unabated passion for sourdough, Elaine and I decided to create this new kit which includes everything a sourdough baker needs.”

Elaine, expert sourdough baker, adds: “I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Bertie to curate this fabulous Sourdough Kit. Whether you are new to sourdough, or already a sourdough baker, you will love it. We have handpicked five varieties of Matthews Cotswold Flour, all perfect for making sourdough, and I have created five recipes, plus a guide to making a sourdough starter with two different flour options, especially for the box. Added to that, you’ll find a collection of tried and tested equipment chosen by me that you can use for making these recipes and then use time and time again for other recipes too.”
