Research into music and bacteria

Music for your fermenting bread…

Scientists in Switzerland played different music to barrels of identical developing cheese for six months and then did blind taste tests.

The clear winner, with a fruitier and a more-liked flavor was the barrel that listened to the hip hop band A Tribe Called Quest.

Time to set up a Bluetooth speaker next to your bowl of dough!

Interesting experiment. Let us know what what music your starter prefers. And how it effects taste. As for mine it’s going to stick to good old peace and quiet.
