This book is going to banish every prejudice you have about sourdough, including the myths that sourdough is time consuming, difficult, and elitist. It is a fool proof guide for busy people who think they do not have the time to make sourdough.
There are many reasons why people bake sourdough, it is easier to digest, more nutritious, and absolutely delicious, however it has a reputation for being tricky and time consuming. The traditional beautiful boule is iconic, but it is demanding, and most people do not have the skills or time to makes this, especially during the working week.
The approach in this book is about making sourdough to fit in with real life. How to long, slow, ferment everyday bakes into 10 minutes, so that people can actually bake and enjoy the most delicious bread in the world.
‘10 Minute Sourdough’ follows a year of recipes at the Sourdough School. The Academic year starts in the Autumn with the new harvest. The recipes include pan loaves, cakes, focaccia style loaves that make simple suppers, a simple pizza, and include several celebration recipes.
The book follows 12 months of baking every week – each chapter following the seasons – and includes observations about the recipe, and thoughts about the seasonal ingredients.
Each recipe can be made over 36 hours but with just 10 minutes actual work in total (excluding baking time).
The 10 Minute Sourdough book makes baking sourdough simple, easy and appealing – a fool proof guide for busy people who think they do not have the time to make sourdough.
