Sourdough bread, delicious, tangy, satisfying, is one of life's real pleasures, but like all good things, it takes time. In this journey through the world of sourdough bread baking, Martina Goernemann reveals how the process of baking bread exemplifies food awareness, a way of life that is becoming increasingly popular. Beginning with her own first attempts, Goernemann then goes on to interview a series of people across countries and cultures who, like her, have incorporated the practice of sourdough baking as a healing ritual for overscheduled lives. From interior design expert Delia Fischer finding her way in the kitchen of her grandmother, to John Whalley, an American realist painter who appreciates the simplicity of things and therefore discovered sourdough as a perfect object for his portraits, each of the individuals profiled represent a different appreciation for the time and patience necessary to create the perfect loaf. What they all have in common is Goernemann's starter recipe, now part of the Puratos Company's sourdough library. She's also included valuable tips from professional bakers around the world. Whether it's carving out time in a busy day, contemplating the miraculous combination of flour, spices, and water, or painstakingly searching for the optimum conditions, bakers at every level will take away something valuable from this nourishing guide to living well through sourdough.

Dairy goes vegan! The recipes in this book are all temptingly good. They are clear and simple and you are led through each process step-by-step. In the introduction to the book, which is beautifully illustrated with colour photographs throughout, you have all the information you need about the essential ingredients (and not just soya), kitchen utensils and the various fermentation starters that are available, how to make them yourself, which other ingredients are helpful and above all where you get them. You will find all sources listed. There are basic recipes, such as cashew cheese, on which other recipes then build and a whole range of vegan ‘milk classics’ to make. Vegan cheese, yogurt, tofu, milk, cream and butter are surprisingly diverse and easy to prepare. The wealth of recipes spans the spectrum from tomato rosemary cheese made from almonds, fermented by Rejuvelac and herbal cream cheese from coconut cream, almond crème fraîche to chickpea tofu. There is even a recipe for cheese dip for nachos, and mac and cheese. In addition to the cheeses you will find plenty of spreads, butters with different flavours and full-bodied delicacies such as ricotta or mascarpone. And there are faster variants such as the ‘pizza cheese’. Finally there is a chapter covering vegan drinks such as almond milk, oat drink, quick nut milk with nutmeg and soy milk. So who needs to buy drinks in the supermarket when you can make them much healthier and cheaper yourself? You’ll be surprised how little effort vegan products take to make at home. Once again proof that the vegan diet is quite versatile.
