Do Sourdough: Slow Bread for Busy Lives (Paperback)

 

One of the oldest yet simplest, tastiest and most nutritious breads you can make, Sourdough needs only flour, water, salt and a little time. But what if time is the one thing you do not have?

In Do Sourdough, Andrew Whitley a baker of over 30 years who has changed the way we think about bread reveals how the slow fermentation that is key to real sourdough can happen while we are asleep or at work. And by using his simple and fuss-free method, everyone can make this wonderful bread at home. Discover:

  • The basic tools and ingredients you need to get started;
  • How to create and refresh your own sourdough starter;
  • Recipes for basic loaves as well as sourdough pizza, ciabatta and crumpets;
  • Ideas for the bread you do not devour immediately.

The result isn't just fresh bread made with your own hands and in your own time. It is the chance to learn new skills, make something to share with family and friends, and change your world one loaf at a time.
