Nov 21st, 2016: Sourdough Hotel

Home made bread has become very popular in Sweden over the last few years, so popular in fact that
the country has its very own dough hotel – a place where people can drop off their precious sourdough
knowing that it will be cared for properly until they return. No it’s not a joke, such a place actually exists.

Sadly, the Urban Deli dough hotel in central Stockholm closed in 2014, but sourdough aficionados in the
Swedish capital didn’t have to go without a place to drop off their precious starters for very long.
In 2015, the RC Chocolat chocolaterie/bakery at Stockholm’s Arlanda airport opened their own sourdough hotel.
“We decided to open up our sourdough hotel after one of our regulars told us we should do it! We felt like
we would gain a lot of attention from it as well, and get people to come here,” Charlotta Söör told VICE Munchies.

The airport is the perfect location to drop off your sourdough before going on vacation or on a business trip,
and last year, Joakim Blomqvist, manager of RC Chocolat, told The Local that around 70 travelers had chosen
to leave their precious doughs for safe keeping.

Wondering how the new hotel takes care of a dough? Charlotta is happy to explain: “You can check in your
dough 24/7, since we are staffed all hours of the day. During its stay, your dough will be fed regularly with an
organic flour of your choice and water, which we then blend into the dough. I guess you can call it a massage!
We will also make sure to keep the dough at a good temperature and dispose of the extra dough it will produce
in order to keep it in the original size you left it in.”

It's nuts, but I am glad I live in a world where this is possible.

The problem I see is they trim it down and throw the excess away. That way when the owner gets back, they have to feed it for a week before they can make bread.
