In January I began reviewing Sourdough: Recipes for Rustic Fermented Breads, Sweets, Savories, and Moreby Sarah Ownens.
I had big plans of baking different recipes from the book throughout the year.
Change of plans!
Instead I’m going to give you my top three takeaways from this book.
These are the recipes I tried from Sara’s Sourdough Cookbook
My Top Three Things I learned and loved about this book
- There Are Plenty of recipes to stretch your thinking. Sour
Dough isn’t just for bread!
- I learned a new and interesting way to make a sourdough
- Part one of the Book is a wonderful resource, with kitchen
notes, stocking the pantry and a sourdough primer
I only had one pet peeve and that was having to flip back to the beginning of the book for baking directions for the breads. It’s a small thing, but it bugged me. That’s just me.
Whether you end up loving a new cookbook or not, my feeling is you will learn something from it.
and that’s always a good thing.
It’s worth a read and worth a try. You just might find a recipe that will become a family tradition.
We loved the Honey Spelt Bread and Pane di Farro, in fact the only recipe I wasn’t “in love” with was the Root Casserole…which isn’t bread 🙂
Flipping through the pages is a source of inspiration. It makes me want to bake some sourdough bread. I just might need to make some of those buttermilk biscuits or a Strawberry Coffee Cake!
Give it a try if you’re looking for adventure in your sourdough baking
