Why are there so many fetishists who harbour intense passions for baking Sourdough bread? Well maybe it's because looking after the live starter culture is like having the dog they were never allowed. Or maybe being part of the sourdough movement gives them a sense of purpose Theresa May could never inspire. Either way we're also partial to the balance of crunch, chew and tangy flavour provided by this sweet sweet relic of the old times.
On a side note, have you noticed the suspicious correlation between sourdough and cinnamon buns? Mmm, so have we.
Pretty famous for their bread, St John's Bakery is open to the general public (that's you and me) at the weekend. Pop along to their railway arch to buy their incredibly popular fresh donuts, and grab some of that sell out bread...
Flat Iron Square is a pretty nice little spot. Walk into it and you'll be welcomed with a cocktail of food smells, including the freshly baked white, wholemeal and rye sourdough. Wanna see how that dough holds up in a toastie? They got that too, don't fret.
The Dusty Knuckle sells hot loaves from a little hatch in their shipping container. Better yet, on a sunny day the bench seating at this social enterprise bakery is the perfect place to munch on their sarnies filled with all sorts, from salt beef to labneh.
This proper old-school bakery is a total South London gem. It has all the classics from spelt to eccles cakes. And it's all organic! Take the sourdough home and grab a snack while you're there to eat on Clapham Common.
Famed for their award-winning Peckham rye, this bakery-cum-cafe is the bomb. With a cracking selection of weekly tartines on rotation, you'll never leave here hungry. How does the sound of smoked mackerel pate, radish & watercress sound? Pretty good, eh?
These guys pride themselves in the process and quality of their stone baked sourdough bread from Sweden. We salute their bread but aaaaaalso their cinnamon buns are pretty darn fab too.
There may only be a brief window on Saturday when you can get your hands on the Little Bread Pedlar’s stuff, but trust us, it’s worth it. Roll out of bed for sourdough loaves, croissants, quiches, and signature pastries.
You don't need us to tell you how much quality grub there is on Broadway Market but if you're in need of a loaf, this is a top spot. There's all sorts of pastries and some quality sourdough with plenty o' flavour.
