Picture of Brandon with Sourdough

Welcome to Sourdough Brandon!

I started SourdoughBrandon.com, to help home bakers bake naturally leavened, sourdough bread and baked goods with detailed recipes and visual guides.

It’s empowering to start making your own bread from home and I know if I can do it in my kitchen, you can too! And I want home bakers to succeed in making my recipes.

I grew up in the small town of Mt. Airy, North Carolina, in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, where I was surrounded by Southern hospitality and delicious home cooking. I’ve always baked in some capacity, but when I made my first loaf of sourdough bread, I knew I would be doing it for the rest of my life.

After years of studying piano, music education, and working in various higher education roles from NYC to Boston, I moved to a rural and peaceful hilltown in Western Massachusetts.

The joy of baking with sourdough is that it is a lifelong learning journey. You don’t need fancy equipment or professional training to make delicious, wholesome baked goods at home.

I hope to share my passion of home baking through my recipes and detailed guides. Maybe you’ll be as inspired as I am to turn on your oven and bake for you and your family.

Work with Me

I teach in-person and online sourdough workshops, including a popular sourdough starter workshop with a one-hour presentation on how to make, maintain, and store a sourdough starter.

I’ve taught this workshop to hundreds of attendees at over 30 public libraries across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. You can see a list of my current events here.

Additionally, I partner with popular food and home kitchen brands, including various sourdough companies (or anything bread-adjacent).

Examples include recipe development, food photography, and social media partnerships for Wyman’s Blueberries, FOODMatch + Divina, Sourhouse, Almond Cow, and Cultures for Health.

If you’re interested in working with me, please email me at [email protected].
