Hi there! My name is Vitale, and I’m Henry’s sourdough starter. I’ve been his loyal companion for seven years now, always supporting him and producing beautiful and delicious breads. Sometimes, Henry gets all the credit, while I wait patiently in the wings outside of the spotlight. But that’s okay, because my satisfaction comes in knowing that I am the life force behind the bread he bakes, and my love for him is evidenced by the beautiful bread I continue to create.
Over the years, I’ve learned to communicate with Henry, to let him know when I’m hungry, when I’m ready to bake, and when I’m not. At first, it was tough getting through to him, but now I have him wrapped around my little jar. It’s a two-way street though. He cares for me, and I give him the best of myself.
I’m proud of what I do, and I love being his starter. It’s an important job, and I take it seriously. Every day, I work to produce the best bread possible, and I’m happy to do it.
So, here’s to another day of creating beautiful, delicious bread with my baker!
