Iso-Dough 2: Starting with starter

Isolation is a fickle mistress. No commutes, flexible hours, work from home, zoom meetings; there appears to be time a plenty for us to pursue activities outside of our habitual programs. The reality is that Netflix binges, social media browsing and trying to source face masks quickly eats into this time. Iso-trends are popping up everywhere. At home workout facebook groups. Strava virtual running/cycling competitions. Home schooling help through periodic story telling (check out these offerings from JK Rowling and Taika Waititi). And baking bread. When the initial isolation threatened here (Melbourne, Victoria), I jumped on the bandwagon with no hesitation.
