The pandemic was the perfect time for bakers and hobbyists to master the basics of sourdough. This year, a new book arrives to teach anyone how to score intricate and beautiful designs into their sourdough loaves.
Courtesy of Sour Flour founder Brittany Wood, The Art of Sourdough Scoring: Your All-In-One Guide to Perfect Loaves with Gorgeous Designs includes everything readers need to know about bringing an artistic flair to each loaf they bake. Wood introduces bakers of all levels to some of her favorite sourdough recipes, then shares 44 scoring tutorials to make every loaf look impressive with quilted wheat sheaves, winding vines, delicate stars and so many other designs.
The book also combines bold photography with the artistry that has made Sour Flour so successful. Each page has gorgeous photos as well as creative typography and warm, rustic colors to captivate the reader.
“I hope that through your sourdough scoring journey you can find a new creative outlet and share beautiful, intricate designs with your family and friends,” says Brittany Wood.
The Art of Sourdough Scoring: Your All-In-One Guide to Perfect Loaves with Gorgeous Designs ($21.99, Page Street Publishing, Co.) will be available March 8, 2022.
