You Might Be Wondering...

This new eBook has some of the same core principles as in my physical book (the 8 steps to baking, how to make a starter, etc.), but there's a lot of new content, too.

  • Recipe for an open-crumb sourdough with tips on how to get there
  • More new recipes for things like chocolate + cherry rolls, apricot sourdough, pikelets (like pancakes, but different!), and more.
  • Techniques for adjusting the sour level in your loaves

And probably the biggest difference:

The eBook comes with live spreadsheets for all the bread recipes in the book so you can modify them as you want (scale up down, change ingredients, etc.). Plus, blank sheets to make your own formulas and my bread baking notes sheet.

So it's a mix of some core process material from my book plus new recipes and guides along with those live spreadsheets.

I see this as a companion to my hardcover cookbook, not a replacement!
