Many people are turning their backs on mass-produced, homogenized and bland bread in favour of something natural and nourishing. And what can be more natural than the way bread used to be made - with flour, water and care. Once you've mastered the sourdough 'starter' - the vigorous little mixture of flour and water that helps leaven the bread and develop flavour - you just need to mix a small amount of it with your other ingredients and you're well on your way to a great-tasting fresh loaf.

Top up the starter and you can keep it going for as long as you want. It's no surprise than when people take in the wonderful aroma of their first homemade sourdough loaf, before breaking the firm, springy crust and savouring the delicious, light and flavoursome inside that they never look back. You'll be amazed not only by the flavour and variety of wonderful Sourdough recipes on offer in this book, but by their simplicity. There is a comprehensive step-by-step guide to making the dough, kneading the dough, and shaping, preparing and baking a basic sourdough loaf.

From there, you'll discover exciting breads made with some of the hugely popular ancient grains, including kamut, spelt, einkorn and enner. If you like a rich, dark bread, then you'll be at home in the Rye chapter, with delicious recipes, such as New-York-style rye sourdough or Pumpernickel sourdoughs. Try the Sweet & Savoury Sourdoughs in the Flavoured Sourdoughs section, including classic combinations such as Tomato & Olive, but also more unusual but equally delicious recipes such as Halloumi & Mint. If you have a sweeter tooth, you'll be delighted by the Apple or Date & Walnut.

Discover the dedicated Gluten-free chapter, with the Chickpea Potato Focaccia, Sourdough Potato Pancakes and Teff & Apricot Sourdough.Explore the diverse and divine creations in Snacks & Treats, such as Sourdough Bagels, Sourdough Pretzels and Sourdough Brioche. Finally, a chapter on Speciality Sourdoughs will teach you how to make the perfect Sourdough Baguette and Ciabatta, as well as festive favourites, such as Panettone.

Clear instructions - a Step by Step approach

This is an excellent book for the beginner Sourdough maker. Each recipe has clear step by step instructions and the recipes are varied and interesting. Would make a great gift for a home baker who is keen to try something new.
