Bread of distinction

I am a very lucky girl. Not only do I live within 2 minutes walk of the awesome bakery Stones, but today they gave me some starter for sourdough bread. For free. Because they're nice like that.

And, it's not just any starter either, as theirs was originally given to them in 1983, by none other than the peeps of Moro. I figure that means that my new starter (or Mother, if you're rather) has aristocratic heritage. I will continue to feed it using this recipe from St John. Will post details of first loaf in a few days...
