(Bread) Casper Andre Lugg and Martin Ivar Hveem Fjeld. Sourdough.

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.
