The BEST Focaccia? Right This Way.

Sourdough Breads

Sourdough bread is bread that has been leavened naturally, meaning it has been leavened by a sourdough starter (a fermented mix of flour and water containing wild yeast and bacteria (lactobacilli)) as opposed to by commercial yeast or a chemical leavening agent such as baking powder or baking soda. Sourdough breads require more time than yeast-leavened bread, but the result — tangy loaves with wild, amorphous crumbs — is well worth the time and effort. In this collection, you will find recipes for sourdough pizza, sourdough boules, sourdough sandwich loaves, sourdough focaccia and more.
