Sourdough is a traditional style of bread that is both healthy and delicious, making it a favourite with artisan bakers. The unique tastes and texture of sourdough takes patience, forethought and love to create, and its rise in popularity is indicative of a greater shift towards a more mindful, considered way of living.
Sourdough brings you all you need to know about baking the bread at home and includes 15 extensive and clear step-by-step recipes using a variety of grains. From making your own starter yeast to how to use different flours, Norwegian bakers Casper and Martin's approach is basic and rustic, just like sourdough itself.
Casper and Martin are two young home bakers, born in Fredrikstad in 1985. Over the last 4 to 5 years they have developed their passion for sourdough baking and have shared their enthusiasm with a growing number of Instagram followers (@illebrod). Their commitment to using time honoured techniques coupled with locally grown and harvested grains and flour is showcased beautifully in Sourdough, which is their first publication. Casper currently resides in Fredrikstad, and Martin in Oslo.
