How to Raise a Loaf and Fall in Love with Sourdough Book


A new generation is discovering the chewy texture and rich flavor of real bread, and sourdough is one of the biggest stories in food.

You don’t need to be an expert baker (or in the midst of a pandemic) to make your own sourdough at home.

But once you’re hooked, and want to get fancy, the book will tell you what lames, bannetons, brushes and stones to invest in.

The book makes the key techniques of traditional baking easy to understand, with step-by-step photo instructions and a simple overview of the magical processes that turn wild yeasts into a living baker’s starter, and a bowl of flour into a glowing crusty loaf.
