Description

In Modern Sourdough, Michelle Eshkeri reveals how mastering the art of sourdough baking can open up a world of sweet and savoury treats at home.
 
Michelle opened Margot Bakery in a shop in East Finchley, London in 2016. An instant hit, it became an experiment in pushing the boundaries of what a local bakery could be, by specialising in sourdough leavened pastries and sweet doughs alongside more traditional breads.
 
Bringing together over 100 mouth-watering recipes inspired by Michelle’s heritage, Modern Sourdough expands our understanding of this ancient baking technique. Featuring a step-by-step guide to making a sourdough starter, as well as methods for folding, shaping, scoring and baking, it demonstrates how you too can make Margot signature loaves, as well as naturally-leavened pizzas, challah, focaccia, French pastries, brioche and babka.
 
Covering bread, cakes, buns, savoury bakes and store cupboard wonders, plus a selection of non-sourdough favourites from the bakery, these are recipes you’ll want to make again and again.

The author

Michelle Eshkeri opened Margot Bakery in a shop in East Finchley, London in 2016. Believing that the bread she baked at home, one loaf at a time, would also be enjoyed by friends and neighbors. It has developed into a center of community life and a place to buy wonderful bread and pastries, where everything is produced on site. There isn’t a night shift, so the bread, pastries and cakes fill the counter and the shelves throughout the day. With a menu guided by what they are excited about; customer favorites, festivals, celebrations and seasonal produce. Using seeds, whole grains and a long fermentation process to make full-flavored, nutritious and delicious bread.
