The Sourdough Baker’s sets are a collaborative set created between Ryan from Green Grapes, a talented Scottish Woodworker based in the South of France & my own textile studio in The Liberties, Dublin 8.
I am a big fan of sourdough baking and I am over the moon to be able to offer this amazing set.
*** As with all collaborative gift sets, limited quantities are available!
Bread Bags and Luxury Double Layer Bread Bags are also available to buy separately on the website ***
There are two options for you to choose from:
•Option 1 contains:
- a linen & cotton bread bag (sturdy layer of 50% linen 50% cotton - Oeko Tex Certified) made in my own studio in The Liberties in Dublin 8
- a dough scraper
- a bread lame/knife/grignette to score your dough (the blade can be easily and safely stored inside the wood when not in use)
•Option 2 contains the same as option 1 + a moon brush to dust of/spread flour on your dough or counter top
Ryan’s craftsmanship is flawless. Each piece is as unique as the wood it comes from with an incredible smooth finish.
The bread lames, dough scrapers and moon brushes are made from French Walnut, French Oak and local French Ash and will be sent according to availability.
(There are various colours available for the bread bag drawstrings. You can specify your chosen colour or colours in the notes to seller or get a random colour or combination of 2 colours - dusty green/olive green/dusty pink/grey blue/deep blue/natural/rust/terracotta).
IMPORTANT CARE INSTRUCTIONS from Ryan about the dough scrapers and words about his work:
« As these are made of wood, they are a convenient alternative to plastic spatulas (less plastic!), and metal scrapers which can potentially damage certain surfaces. If looked after well, these will age beautifully over time and bear the character of the owner and its use.
Flour these objects first to keep them happy and pass them down to the next generations of keen bakers. Intermittently, they will benefit from a thorough clean* and oiling with a food-safe oil (such as raw linseed oil or mineral oil).
*Please note: Do not soak in water as this will warp the wood. Clean lightly with cold water (no soap!). As mentioned above, pre-flour your scraper before use, and wipe off with a clean cloth when finished with the day's baking.
Our products are all made by hand, using only sustainable and locally-sourced materials. This is part of our commitment to celebrating the wobbly imperfections of life that make the everyday more beautiful. The sourced material determines the outcome and aesthetic of each piece, making everything we make unique. »
