For those who haven’t yet partaken in the sourdough-making craze that swept through coronavirus lockdowns this spring, none other than Mike Joyce — yes, the former drummer for The Smiths — is here to help get you up to speed and kneading away.

Joyce, who got into baking sourdough after his son gifted him a starter this past Christmas, filmed a 14-minute breadmaking tutorial for the Manchester Food and Drink Festival’s YouTube page.

“They’ve asked me if I would give a sourdough masterclass,” Joyce says in the beginning of the video. “That isn’t going to happen. It’s not a masterclass, by no means. … Trial and error, a lot of error.”
