Final summer time, my husband, Kevin turned fairly obsessed by a narrative he found on twitter, of how somebody had efficiently managed to bake a loaf of sourdough utilizing 4,500-year-old yeast present in an historic Egyptian pot. Kevin has advised the story to anybody that may pay attention, very impressed that one thing so distinctive might be created.
Quick ahead 6 months, and I’m approached by TUFTS college journal, for instance an article about this exact same superb story. It was my flip to do some investigation. It seems that the “somebody” was in truth TUFTS alumni, Seamus Blackley, who, after creating the Xbox, went on to change into a gastroegyptologist. (I imply, actually, some persons are simply too cool). Blackley has an incredible thread on twitter, explaining how he managed to recreate this genuine historic Egyptian bread.
TUFTS requested me to include a few of Blackley’s pictures into the art work, so it turned out to be a extremely enjoyable fee. You possibly can learn the article on-line right here.
