Description

Start, grow, and bake your own delicious, homemade sourdough bread, with or without commercial yeast!

Homemade Sourdough is the ultimate guide to creating your own sourdough bread. Learn sourdough formulas and recipes and follow along as the author explains the science behind sourdough and provides a guide to the world of starters, wild yeasts, proofing, pre-ferments, and motherdough.

Homemade Sourdough provides dozens of recipes, not just for bread but for other baked goods, from muffins to pizza crust to chocolate cake. Sourdough is especially attractive to anyone who is aiming for a sustainable, self-sufficient lifestyle and also those who want the health benefits of bread made through fermentation. Sourdough rises through the action of lactic acid, so it doesn't require storebought yeast€”but the sourdough starter method works beautifully with either commercial yeast or wild yeast.

For those interested in lowering their intake of gluten, sourdough preparations can produce lively, tasty loaves with lower amounts of gluten than other methods.

There is no better way to embrace heritage flavors and time-tested bread-baking techniques than with sourdough. Foodies, farmers, DIYers, and locavores will want to devour this book.

The author

Ed Wood is the author of Classic Sourdoughs: A Home Baker's Handbook and owner of Sourdoughs International, a source of authentic sourdough cultures from all over the world. Wood has traveled the globe in search of these sourdough cultures, and he worked with the National Geographic Society to learn how the first leavened sourdough bread was made at Giza, in Egypt, to feed 30,000 pyramid builders. Wood is dedicated to testing new cultures, new ingredients, and new ideas to keep authentic sourdough alive.
