It wasn’t until the very recent past that I heard about Josey Baker. Josey, who happens to have a bakery (he swears that’s his real name!), is a baker by almost accident. He says that one day a friend of his stopped by his apartment in San Francisco, where he used to be a teacher, and left him some sourdough starter as a thanks for having him over for a few days. His friend also left behind a set of simple instructions that Josey studied for several days before trying to bake.
