I bought a dried sourdough starter at The Mixing Bowl in Burwood. I managed to get it reconstituted into a nice, bubbly sourdough starter that just won't stop!
Here's a recent loaf:

When you see sourdough bread, and you want to tell if its really, really sourdough, look closely at the crust. You should see little bubbles like this:

Obviously there will be some fabulous sourdoughs that have no sign of bubbles, because of the other yummy ingredients, so don't go insulting your local artisan baker!
We are eating this one tonight.
