Simple, Easy, Delicious
The “Sourdough A to Z” eBook offers simple lessons and tasty, nutritious, whole-grain recipes. This is the companion eBook to our popular and life-changing Sourdough class of GNOWFGLINS eCourse. In 25 lessons, we help you master sourdough!
A Collaborative Effort
The “Sourdough A to Z” eBook puts together the expertise and experience of five bloggers/cooks:
- Wardee Harmon, GNOWFGLINS
- Erin Vander Lugt, GNOWFGLINS
- Katie Kimball, Kitchen Stewardship
- Sara Kay Michalski, author of gluten-free adaptations of eBook recipes and techniques
- Christina Dickson, a personal friend of Wardee’s
Each of these cooks practices sourdough uniquely. After all, there’s not one “right” way to do sourdough. In order to master sourdough, you must apply the principles of sourdough how they best fit with your life, your routine, and your kitchen.
We know that and we want you to succeed. That’s why, in this eBook, we’ve all come together for the learning experience. You’ll be able to learn from each cook, practice multiple methods, and take away what works best for you.
“This is honestly the best and most comprehensive resource on sourdough that I know of. With 5 different authors collaborating their knowledge and experience to write it, and 25 detailed lessons, it will answer all of your sourdough questions and have you preparing incredible foods for your family in no time. Though I rarely print out eBooks, this is one that I would consider printing out to have in a binder as an easily accessible resource and recipe book.” –Stephanie Langford of Keeper of the Home
“I try not to gush, but y’all this book is amazing. It is the most comprehensive book I have come across when it comes to sourdough baking. I was blown away by the volume of recipes for a sourdough version of any baked good you could imagine. What I really enjoy about this book is the feeling of community you get when you read it. It’s as if you are sitting down with a few friends over tea as they share their latest and greatest kitchen experiments. The Sourdough A to Z book is truly all you’ll ever need to know about baking with sourdough. And even for a cheap thrifty gal like me, it is worth every penny.” –Shannon Stonger of Nourishing Days
