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 make this, especially during the working week.
The approach in this book is about making sourdough that fits in with real life: how to slow-ferment everyday bakes in just 10 minutes of active work, so that you 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 and continues through the seasons, featuring seasonal ingredients. The recipes include pan loaves, cakes, focaccia-style loaves, a simple pizza, and several celebration recipes.
Each recipe can be made over a 36-hour period, but with just 10 minutes actual work (excluding baking time).
10-Minute Sourdough makes baking sourdough simple, easy and appealing.
