Director Statement


This story has truly been inspired by personal experience. As an avid sourdough baker I found myself constantly working with dough, getting it under my fingernails and all over my clothes. One winter I had a sore throat that I couldn't shake so I went to the doctor and she swabbed for streptococcus. A few weeks later when my throat was all better I got my results back from the lab. They found no sign of streptococcus but they did find a colony of yeast cells! It was there and then I realized that I was being consumed by my passion for sourdough bread.
