I was grateful to find a book on this interesting topic, but I am so frustrated with it that I have developed step-by-step instructions for myself from its long, narrative, in-depth discussions. For complicated issues one wants clear instructions, not paragraphs of narrative! I have twice bought starter from the company but up until now I have been so intimidated by the complication of it all that I haven't yet launched my soughdough project. I'm hoping to overcome that by adapting and following my own instructions. If I succeed it will be in spite of the book! ( )

Sourdoughs are never going to be easy to make, and are always time consuming. A great book, though, with plenty to get stuck into. Just make sure you have lots of fridge space for the starters! ( )
