Rezension zu "Slow Dough: Real Bread: Bakers' secrets for making amazing long-rise loaves at home" von Chris Young
Due to food intolerances, I've been baking all our bread for quite some time now and I've read a fair number of books about bread and baking and everything around it as well. When I got the chance to read this book, I was really curious and eager to try new recipes. And I must say that this book is simply amazing! In here you will find everything you need to know about bread and the different kinds of bread whether it be pre-ferment, long-ferment or sourdough.
You will learn how to make them from scratch, how to nurture your own sourdough and much more.
Then you get the chance to use this new knowledge to bake a bunch of delicious breads, some simple but savory, some intriguing, some sweet, some tart, some...no matter what, they all look and sound delicious. I couldn't try all of them yet but up to now I was never disappointed. The recipes are easy to follow and the photos are just gorgeous.
All recipes are donated by Real Bread bakers who are also part of the Real Bread Campaign.
So...if you want to bake your own bread or want to try other recipes, other varieties of bread, this is the book to turn to. Oh, and don't worry if you tried too many recipes at once, there's a whole section with recipes for leftovers, be it leftover bread or leftover sourdough.
I can wholeheartedly recommend this book and if you still wonder if it is worth all the work - yes, it is. My family loves the freshly baked bread and even the kids from the neighbourhood come in when I am baking, hoping to be in time for a slice of fresh bread.
