Dale Carlile, January 2, 2010 (view all comments by Dale Carlile)
I have always loved good sourdough breads, but the cookbook starters never provided the desired results. Then I purchased Mr. Woods book on Sourdough. He explained why I never got the results I desired and how to get them. His telling of his exploits in the collecting of starters from around the world is as entertaining as any novel and the breads they make are to die for. I have told many of my friends about this book and the wonderful starters available from the author. I now call sourdough the 10-minute bread. 10 minutes to make the dough in the morning, then 10 minutes to shape it into loaves at night. Followed by turning the oven on before the morning shower. Yum fresh bread for breakfast. I could not have done it without this book. Thanks Mr. Wood, you are my favorite author.
