Summary
A software engineer is left a sourdough starter from sibling bakers after they're forced to close their shop, a gift that leads to a new vocation, a legal dispute, and a venture into a secret market that fuses food with technology
Summary
Lois works at a company trying to perfect a robot arm, and while she has been eating the 'Slurry,' or nutrient paste, that many use for nourishment, she discovers a nearby take-out restaurant that offers a 'double spicy' along with the most delicious sourdough bread she has ever tasted. The brothers who own this restaurant also briefly enchant her, and before they leave San Francisco they share with her the starter for the bread, which changes her life forever. This delightful tale of food, robotics and microorganisms is filled with charm, magical realism, and science. -- Michael Colford for LibraryReads
