Give your sourdough a healthy start—a sourdough cookbook from the creator of Breadtopia

Sourdough bread is iconic for its crispy crust, airy and springy crumb, and unique tangy flavor—and it all begins with a fermented, yeasty concoction called a starter. While the process may seem extensive, The Sourdough Cookbook for Beginners, brought to you by the owner and creator of Breadtopia, will show you how easy it can be to whip up a delicious array of artisanal sourdough breads with just a few ingredients, simple tools, and a little bit of patience.

This sourdough cookbook pairs simple instructions with tutorial photos, covering the first 6 days of bringing your starter to life and helping it thrive. Explore the science of how sourdough starters make bread rise along with how to prep your kitchen, plus tips and tricks you may have seen on Breadtopia. Then, try your hand at dozens of crusty artisan-style breads, flavored pan loaves, pastry, pizza, and even unique baked goods you can make with the leftover starter!

This sourdough cookbook includes:

  • Fresh start—With advice straight from Breadtopia, explore a walkthrough of making, feeding, storing, and reactivating starters, as well as what factors can influence fermentation and flavor.
  • Knead-to-know—This sourdough cookbook provides a complete walkthrough of bread baking, plus beginner recipes, a handy glossary, and troubleshooting tips for every step.
  • On the rise—The recipes in this sourdough cookbook, including some of the best from Breadtopia, progress from a Basic No-Knead bread to a more difficult Chocolate Babka so you can expand your skills as you go.

Enjoy the sweet smell of sourdough success with the The Sourdough Cookbook for Beginners.
