Learn to make your own sourdough starter--and delicious breads and other baked goods! No instant or active yeast required! What if the secret to authentic, natural, and delicious bread comes from making your own starter--the agent that incorporates wild yeast and bacteria into your bread, bringing it to life and giving it rich and robust flavor? With years of culinary experience and training, French baker Mouni Abdelli invites you to discover the joy and satisfaction of making your own natural sourdough starter, which offers unrivaled flavor and releases the full nutritional and digestive benefits of the bread you bake. Unlike mass-produced and unwholesome industrially made bread, making your own homemade baked bread is a return to natural, nourishing ingredients, and an invitation to slow down and return to the simple and magical process of breadmaking. With Abdelli's guidance and recipes, you will first learn to make your own sourdough starter from scratch, then learn to work it into multiple recipes based on your taste and the other ingredients. You'll learn to make many kinds of bread, including sourdough bread, baguettes, ciabatta, challah, tortillas, and pita. You'll also be able to use your starter to move beyond bread and make delicious waffles, brownies, pizza dough, donuts, and more! Over the course of the book, you will become a breadmaking expert as you learn to maintain your starter--feeding it, storing it, and using it to make the best homemade breads and baked goods you have ever tasted!

Pierre Herme is universally acknowledged as the king of French pastry with shops in Tokyo, Paris and London. He is the best, and has even been described as a couturier of pastry. This is a man at the top of his art and there is no question his macarons are in a league of its own. Macarons are the aristocrats of pastry; these brightly coloured, mini meringues, daintily sandwiched together with gooey fillings, have become a holy grail for cookery fanatics and there are even food blogs dedicated to them. Like Pierre Herme's famous macarons, it would be difficult for any macaron book to surpass this one and indeed the hardback edition has been a universal bestseller (still in print 978-1-908117-23-6). There are 208 pages of recipes and beautiful food photography, and because making macarons is mostly about technique, rather than just a standard recipe, readers will appreciate the 32-step-by-step photo-illustrated instructions for making shells and fillings. All the classics are here like dark chocolate, praline, coffee, and pistachio, but others feature the more unusual macarons that Herme is justly famous for: Isfahan is one, with lychee, rose and raspberry, Arabesque with apricot and pistachio, Satine with passion fruit, orange and cream cheese, Mandarin and pink pepper, black truffles, balsamic vinegar as well as a bright-green macaron filled with fresh mint. Anyone interested in making macarons will find MACARONS the best book in print.
