The latest craze in Sweden seems to be sourdough bread, the famed stuff of San Francisco whose upkeep requires daily attention from bakers to maintain the living bacteria that give it that distinctive zip.
So what to do if you're a Swede on the go? Check your starter loaf into Stockholm's newest hotel: A sourdough sanctuary at the Nytorget Urban Deli, where bakers will tend to your bread base on your behalf.
One traveling musician says its a Godsend, the AP reports, letting him travel to gigs while babying his bread.
The "hotel" charges about $30 a week.
Perhaps the sanctuary takes its cue from its Spanish brethren: a hotel for people's plants.
