Sauerteig: Echtes Brot und mehr
by Sarah Owens, Ngoc Minh Ngo (Illustrator)
Beautifully made book with pretty photographs. I like that it is sorted by yearly seasons.
Complicated recipes with many steps, not for beginners.
Many unusual ingredients.
Very time-intensive recipes.
A very complicated starter recipe.
Explanations are very wordy. With lots of text. I prefer clearer instructions.
And the Critical-No-Go for me:
All the recipes for making bread result in two loaves. I am single and have no freezer. What am I to do with two loaves?
So this book is pretty to look at, but mostly not usable for me. I will probably make some of the slightly simpler recipes in this at some point and then revisit my rating. Maybe I will even make one of the breads, giving one of the loaves away to friends as a present. But this will not become my go-to-book for bread making.
Luckily I found a much easier starter recipe online and now ordered that author‘s sourdough baking book. Review of that one to come!
