Rustic Sourdough Bread & GiveawayComments : 49 Posted in : Appetizer on by : Chris Tags: bread, sourdough, sourdough bread
I was going to share a deliciously good looking (and tasting) sourdough pizza recipe with you. But you know what happened? We ate it.
Not just once. Multiple times. Mwah hah hah.
There. Now you know one of the ugly secrets of food blogging – not all the dishes survive long enough to be photographed.
And another other ugly secret? Sometimes you have to tell the photographer she isn’t allowed to eat until the photos have been taken. As I had the willpower (foolishness?) to do with this delicious sourdough bread. And my photographer is so wonderful she did. I love you honey!
Alright lets get serious here for a minute. Sourdough.
I love sourdough. Sourdough rolls make my sandwich so much tastier. I can’t eat a bowl of soup without a big crusty chunk of sourdough. And have you ever had sourdough pizza? Delicious! (I promise I’ll try to share that recipe next week!)
As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I’ve recently begun to experiment with bread baking. Bread baking that does not require digging a giant hole in your parents back yard to build a brick oven before jet setting to Japan.
So there I was minding my own business doing some simple bread baking. Then I saw a sourdough recipe on a blog that I’ve been following since I first fell in love with the food blog scene (and you should follow Crepes of Wrath too). This blog post: Simple Sourdough Boule. Inspiration struck. I wanted to bake sourdough; I wanted to eat that!
I took the plunge and ordered a sourdough starter from King Arthur Flour after my own attempts at cultivating one failed miserably. Within days we were eating delicious sourdough pizza (and not photographing it).
I’m still getting the hang of baking bread in general, but sourdough does not add any additional difficulty. But it does add a lot of flavor that we are loving. And we think you would love it to. So…(dramatic music) queue the give away!
King Arthur Flour was kind enough to offer one complimentary Sourdough Starter & Crock to a lucky reader of The Keenan Cookbook!
To enter, just do any of the following – do multiple for additional chances to win!
