Demystifying the process

Sourdough bread tastes surprisingly good. It has a deep chewiness and a simple crusty cob that fills you up for the day. Making it is quite simple.

  • Bread dough does not have to be precise. Regular flour is also good to use if you can't find bread flour.
  • One good tip is to avoid dusting your table or dough with flour while kneading as it leads to a tight, dry, underdeveloped dough.
