Interest in sourdough bread is rising among bakers, especially home bakers. A book set for release in late spring will look to make sourdough even more accessible to bakers of all skill levels.
New World Sourdough from Bryan Ford is a guide to baking inventive sourdough breads at home. The book will show readers 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 inviting, nontraditional approach to home baking.
Ford’s recipes include step-by-step instructions and photographs of all of the mixing, shaping, and baking techniques readers will need to know, with special attention paid to developing flavor as well as their own instincts. The straightforward book will offer practical accessible techniques and creative recipes like Pan de Coco, Pizza, and Challah, Focaccia, and Pullman loaves.
Bryan Ford infuses his passion for his Latin American culture into his recipes on his blog Artisan Bryan and Instagram. He is currently the Head Baker of the Ironside Bakery, an artisanal bakery that focuses on using local, seasonal ingredients and organic grains to make rustic sourdough breads and viennoiserie.
New World Sourdough (Quarry Books) will be released on June 16, 2020. It is available for pre-order through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other online retailers.
