So the ice fishing was in Texas? Wow! Yeah, nothing better than thick crust of Sourdough bread. Ever been to the Tadish Grill in San Francisco? IMHO, the best bread in the entire world.

My goodness. What was that movie? Grumpy Old Men - Jack Lemon, Walter Mathau and gorgeous Ann Margaret. Their ice fishing looked like fun and I took it the fish was definitely edible. Why fish if you can't eat the fish? Poisoned from what? Pollution?

Well, we can always fall back on our bread, right?

yeah, Mbastiszta, the river is definitely polluted.......but they like to catch them though I never see many leave with a whole stringer full or even a cooler......I think it's more for sport than anything else......

though this is a bit off-topic another favorite sport on the river is to sit in a sauna (they call it banya) and then drop into a wide hole cut out in the ice, swim around, and then get out and run along the river bank in a bathing suit while there is still snow on the ground..........I probably could make a fortune selling real sourdough bread as they got out..........they have the most wonderful bread here........

Interesting. They did something very similar in Germany. I spent 3 separate years at three different universities there. They would sit in a hot sauna and then go outside and jump in the snow. Yep, naked. They would rub the snow all over them and jump into a tub or pool of cold water. Then they would run back into the sauna. I must say I never saw the point and never participated in the fun, as it looked like torture to me.
What kind of bread are you mentioning in Kazakhstan?

At leaste for the bread.

Here is th recipie it gave me:

1 package of dry yeast
1/2 cup of warm water
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon of suger or honey
Sourdough starter is not made from commercial yeast. Furthermore, once a home baker has a healthy sourdough starter, commerical yeast is not needed.

While a sourdough starter can be made from scratch using only flour and water, it's easiest to begin with someone else's sourdough culture. An inexpensive and excellent dried sourdough starter is available for the cost of two stamps from http://home.att.net/~carlsfriend/

While DC does have home bread bakers who routinely use sourdough leavening for their breads, I have found that the best advice on sourdough breads is found at this breadbaking forum - The Fresh Loaf | News & Information for Amateur Bakers and Artisan Bread Enthusiasts

You gotta love sourdough! Since the starters are unique to local organisms in the air, all sourdoughs are different.
