I was excited when I saw this with the title of sourdough starter 100 artisan bread baking. There are only 3 recipes out of the 100 in the book that actually use a sour dough starter, yet the forward goes into lots of detail about creating and caring for your sour dough starter. There are a number of recipes which do not have any form of yeast or rising agent, yet are supposed to a dough which rises to make a bread or bread roll. If you are looking just for a book on baking bread or bread rolls, then the book is fine, but sour dough it is not for you.
I bought this kindle book for recipes to make starters for various kinds of breads. Either I missed seeing the starter recipes or there were no starter recipes in the book. Kind of difficult to make sourdough bread with no starter!!!
Disappointed in this book. Title says Starter Sourdough. Only a few sourdough recipes. Many recipes for yeast and quick breads. Expected more sourdough recipes considering the title of the book. Glad this book was free for kindle users. Very disappointing!!!!!
Am I to assume that some of these recipes are as is, or do you have to keep referring to the tips section at the beginning of the book? As I was trying one of the recipes, I followed it to the letter, but although the bread is tasty, the dough rose nicely, should I have kneaded it? The actual starter recipe worked well; the bread turned out very dense. This book was not clear on whether to use one set of instructions for some or all the recipes.
