Orbisculate Bread (Bread That Spreads A Word)

Orbisculate is a unique, complex sourdough made with the buttery, nutty Khorasan wheat, citrusy yuzu puree, and a  bright floral punch of orange mint. It is a citrus bread unlike any other because of its unusual citrus flavors and also because of its story....

Orbisculate Bread started back in May 2021, when I saw the story of the Krieger siblings on CBS Sunday Morning. They grew up with the word, orbisculate, bouncing around in their vocabulary, thinking it was a well known word to describe what happens when you're scooping out citrus and it squirts you in the eye. However, when they looked it up in the dictionary, they couldn't find the word. Initially thinking something was wrong with their dictionary, they asked their dad, Neil. He came clean that he had made up the word. Well, shortly after Neil's passing in April 2020 from Covid, his kids wanted to honor him in some meaningful way. This is when they came up with the plan to get his word, orbisculate, officially into the dictionary. They immediately started the Orbisculate Campaign to get enough people using it that is becomes part of our everyday vocabulary. When I heard this story, I just had to craft an Orbisculate Bread that would spread the word, tell their story, and represent the flavors that inspired the word in the first place. When I later discovered Yuzu (an Asian citrus that has flavor notes from all of the other citrus), the bread fell into place.
