The Science of Sourdough

To understand sourdough bread baking, it's essential to delve into the science behind it.

Establishing and maintaining a healthy starter is crucial, and various methods can be employed to achieve the desired results.

Fermentation is the magic that transforms ordinary dough into a delightful loaf of sourdough bread. The proofing process, or the time the dough takes to rise, is crucial for developing the flavor and texture of the bread. From autolyse to bulk fermentation and the final proof, understanding the intricacies of fermentation is key to achieving bakery-quality sourdough.

Baking Techniques and Tips

From shaping and scoring to baking temperature and duration, there are numerous techniques and tips that can elevate your sourdough bread baking game.

Sourdough bread offers endless possibilities for exploration and experimentation.
