Learn how to make a sourdough starter, basic breads, as well as other innovative baked goods from start to finish with Instagram star Bryan Ford's (@artisanbryan) inviting, nontraditional approach to home baking. With less emphasis on perfecting crumb structure or obsessive temperature monitoring, Ford focuses on the tips and techniques he's developed in his own practice, inspired by his Honduran roots and New Orleans upbringing, to ensure your success and a good return on your time and effort. Ford's recipes include step-by-step instructions and photographs of all of the mixing, shaping, and baking techniques you'll need to know, with special attention paid to developing flavor as well as your own instincts.
In addition, Ford includes a brief history of bread, with an emphasis on the flavors, techniques, and traditions of Latin American baking. And, even if you don't think you're curious about Latin American bakers or baking, New World Sourdough offers practical accessible techniques, and enticing, creative recipes you'll want to return to again and again, like:
- Pan de Coco
- Pizza dough
- Challah, Focaccia, and Pullman loaves
