Sourdough Bread in Pictures

Pin It
In November I began making my own sourdough bread after buying the Tartine book. Ever since I have planned on sharing the recipe. Yesterday when I got home from work I got stuck in making sourdough for the weekend- I had bought some fantastic eggs and bacon from the Gog Magog Farm shop and was planning an epic breakfast. I had also done a very fair trade with Jo, a jar of her homemade Seville orange marmalade for some of my starter which was begging to be dolloped onto a piece of sourdough. Whilst editing my photos I came to the realisation that I really couldn't do Chad's recipe justice. His technique of turned the dough rather than kneading really ought to come from him so after a very quick search I found the recipe on the Martha Stewart website here. I can't recommend the Tartine book enough and I keep on meaning to make some of the other breads in there although right now I am so in love with the Basic Country Loaf that I can't even begin to imagine how delicious the other breads in there are! So, although I'm not sharing the recipe here I thought I would share my photos. I am very glad the recipe makes 2 loaves because looking at the photos is making my stomach grumble.


  1. I love sourdough bread. I tried to make a starter once but it made very chemical tasting bread. Will have to try again some time, yours looks delicious!

    1. Thanks Deepa, I will happily give you some of my starter if you wanted to try again.
