HASH(0xa8b0c0b4) out of 5 stars Best of both worlds March 23 2006
By L. Swanson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Most sourdough cookbooks fall into one of two camps: The hedgers, who add baking powder or commercial yeast to all their recipes, presumably just in case their starter doesn't perform as desired; and the purists, who never add extra leavening to anything. This book straddles the line nicely, providing both kinds of recipes sorted into sections to suit your mood and the amount of time you have available for baking. There is a great chapter explaining how sourdough works and why you need so much time to bake using it, and another devoted to the ins and outs of adapting sourdough for bread machine use. There is a section of recipes using commercial yeast and the regular bread machine cycle, a section using wild yeast and the bread machine cycle, and a section of wild yeast recipes using only the dough cycle.

The authors tell you approximately how many hours each step will take, which is very helpful when planning your baking, but I will confess to being somewhat turned off by the fact that they describe their starters in terms that seem to be specific to Ed Wood's dried starters for sale ('fast', 'slow', 'Russian', 'Austrian', etc.)

Aside from the odd spelt and kamut bread recipes, there are a lot of rye recipes in this book, pitas and rolls, a selection of bread flavors from around the world, and the very best plain sourdough French bread I have ever made. This book is a great addition to any sourdough baker's collection.

HASH(0xa8b0c108) out of 5 stars TASTY BAKING June 8 2000
By N. MCDERMOTT - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have used this cookbook for years, and decided to order one for my daughter, since it is one of the best sourdough cookbooks around. The recipes are well organized, and the results are stunning! For anyone who does sourdough baking, the varieties are quite intriguing, and the occasional odd ingredients are not usually difficult to find, or substitute for. It's been around a while, but since Amazon.com has it, I'm delighted to buy it for gifts.

HASH(0xa8b0c540) out of 5 stars Sourdough in a Bread Machine July 5 2009
By Martin Basiszta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book! It has explanations and instructions on several ways to make sourdough bread: Using the BM totally; using the dough cycle only of the BM; and using the BM with yeast and sourdough starter. So you can make it "your way". Worth every penny.

HASH(0xa8b0c528) out of 5 stars If you like mixing the old with the new, this book is for you Dec 16 2013
By Harry Keaton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Using the old fashion sourdough starter instead of using yeast gives the sourdough bread a distinct old fashion flavor. Using a bread machine is of course a modern way of baking bread. If you like mixing the old with the new, this cookbook is for you.

HASH(0xa8b0c8f4) out of 5 stars Worldwide Sourdoughs From Your Bread Machine July 1 2011
By mary - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great book, fast shipping too. Bread is our staff of life.
Upon reading, one important factor is I must have on hand an incondescent light buib and a large styrofoam ice chest for use before they both are instinct.
These 2 items will give a warm temperature for rising the starter or dough.
Great information.
