Description

Master the art of sourdough, from creating a starter to baking and serving delicious loaves in this full-color, step-by-step, illustrated guide that demystifies this traditional bread that has been enjoyed around the world for generations.For a growing number of people, eating heathy is more important than ever. We're rejecting processed, packaged foods filled with unpronounceable chemicals, and are embracing, organic whole foods, including whole grain and slow made breads like sourdough--the oldest method of bread baking.

In this encompassing guide, a pair of bakers show you how to master this traditional style of bread which has never been more relevant or popular and is a favorite of artisan bakers. Sourdough features fifteen no-fail recipes with clear, step-by-step instructions and photographs to help you make your own artisanal loaves at home.

The methods and recipes in Sourdough continue a tradition that is more than 5,000 years old: mix flour and water, then allow the dough to ferment and rise by itself. This extended fermentation process allows for maximum flavor--and easier digestion. With an emphasis on local, heirloom, and ancient grains, Sourdough introduces the natural ingredients used in artisan baking, teaches how to make a stable starter, and explains how to "set the leaven" to create perfect baked loaves. The book comes complete with cook's notes and a trouble-shooting section to help you to avoid soggy bottoms, over baking, and other common problems.

Sourdough is an indispensable resource for bakers, and the perfect starter guide for the beginner bread baker.

With an emphasis on local, heirloom, and ancient grains, Artisan Sourdough introduces the natural ingredients used in artisan baking, and offers clear step-by-step instructions and photographs that break down the process of making and maintaining a stable starter, "setting the leaven," and baking up the perfect base loaf.
