Included within are basic information on how to start, feed, maintain, and use a sourdough starter, and how to use it to make/leaven a wide variety of baked and griddle-fired fare, such as SD Bread, SD Pancakes, SD Waffles, SD Bannoks (oat cakes), SD Biscuits, SD Muffins, etc.
It's only 165 pages, granted, but rather than focusing on recipes to the exclusion of all else, it covers TECHNIQUE, so that you can work on your own without a net, and adapt other recipes you find elsewhere to the SD technique.
It's a spiffy little sleeper of a book.
p.s. Word of warning to would-be homebrewers, meadmakers & winemakers ... sourdough cultures are a source of airborne acetobacter and other wild microflora, which will require you to keep your fermenting beverages as FAR away from wherever you store your SD culture as possible, so that they wont be tempted to turn to vinegar, or pick up other annoying and obscure fermentation 'sicknesses'. You will also need to pay very careful attention to sanitation and sterilization techniques for same.
I highly recommend this book to people who are learning about sourdough. It's the only book you'll ever need.
I'm glad to see this book is back in print, as I have been looking to replace my copy for some time.
But this book does not contain only recipes. It tells the reader the history of the food they are about to cook. This is impressive, and it makes the cook more aware of the significance of what she is doing.
I am going to use a bread machine, which means that I will have to adapt the recipes. But I know how much flour goes into each size of bread, so once I get the flour worked out it's only a simple matter of fractions to adapt everything else. I may decide to just make the dough in the machine, and then dump the bread dough onto a jelly roll pan and shape the loaf. If I do that, I can take a sharp knife and make three or four slashes in the top.
It is fascinating just to read cookbooks. Counting the ones I have on Kindle, I probably have about 150, and that's after I gave a lot of the hardcover cookbooks to my new best friend. She'll read them; her husband will cook from them. I have told her that when I die, she is to come over here and get all my cookbooks. My husband knows that. She will read them all; her husband will cook from them all. When I told him that he whooped and then looked very embarrassed. I said, "Dan, don't be embarrassed. I want these books to go to someone who will use them, and I know you will.Read more ›
