A Simple Loaf of Bread Can Create Many Small Pleasures Imagine thick, luscious dough clinging to your hands while you press and knead it with your fingers. Imagine the aroma of fresh-baked bread drifting throughout your kitchen, making your mouth water as you wait for the dough to rise. Best of all, imagine biting into the crisp crust and soft inside still steaming hot from the oven. In our hectic modern world of instant gratification, baking sourdough has become popular as a way to slow down and enjoy the moment. While it may seem easier to go to the store and buy a loaf of bread, this 5,000-year-old art brings rewards far greater than anything you can buy. While sourdough requires more effort than yeast bread, it also provides a tangy, robust, full-bodied flavor and a greater sense of achievement. Sourdough is a great resource with all the basics you’ll need to know to get started on your baking journey. This book contains 20-plus delicious recipes specifically chosen for their short fermentation and rising periods. Sourdough allows you to not only bake this ancient bread but also to appreciate it as well. In Sourdough, you’ll discover:

  • Sourdough is experiencing a comeback today, partially due to its rise in popularity on social media. 
  • How sourdough can be used in unexpected recipes such as pizzas, cakes, muffins, and pies. 
  • The nutritional benefits of sourdough, including a high protein content, low glycemic index, low phytate content, and high lactic acid bacteria. 
  • How the fermentation process used in sourdough lowers the pH of the bread, leading to better digestive health and disease prevention. 
  • What type of sourdough starters you can use and how to ferment them easily at home. 
  • How to maintain and feed your starter so you can bake it fresh at any time.  
  • Recipes for French bread, brioche, beer bread, and baguettes, including a gluten-free option.

Good Sourdough Book

This is a great book for beginner sourdough bakers. There are lots of useful recipes and the instructions are quite clear. One drawback is the lack of photographs.

I would recommend this book only to advanced bakers who are already familiar with sourdough and feeding ratios for starters. There are several ingredients which would definitely have to be ordered from a specialty store/online. You would be doing yourself a great service to have a food scale to measure the ingredients. Chapters 4 & 5 have nothing to do with sourdough though the recipes and techniques should be included in any advanced baker's arsenal.
