Review; New World Sourdough: Artisan Techniques for Creative Homemade Fermented Breads; With Recipes for Birote, Bagels, Pan de Coco, Beignets, and More by Bryan Ford

Last year I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of the cookbook New World Sourdough: Artisan Techniques for Creative Homemade Fermented Breads; With Recipes for Birote, Bagels, Pan de Coco, Beignets, and More by Bryan Ford through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
New World Sourdough is your go-to guide to baking delicious, inventive sourdough breads at home.

Learn how to make a sourdough starter, basic breads, as well as other innovative baked goods from start to finish with Instagram star Bryan Ford's (@artisanbryan) inviting, nontraditional approach to home baking. With less emphasis on perfecting crumb structure or obsessive temperature monitoring, Ford focuses on the tips and techniques he's developed in his own practice, inspired by his Honduran roots and New Orleans upbringing, to ensure your success and a good return on your time and effort. Ford's recipes include step-by-step instructions and photographs of all of the mixing, shaping, and baking techniques you'll need to know, with special attention paid to developing flavor as well as your own instincts.

New World Sourdough offers practical accessible techniques, and enticing, creative recipes you'll want to return to again and again, like:
Pan de Coco
Pita
Pizza dough
Challah, Focaccia, and Pullman loaves
Straightforward and unintimidating, New World Sourdough will get you started with your starter and then inspire you to keep experimenting and expanding your repertoire.

My Thoughts on the Book
New World Sourdough was fun. It includes techniques, plenty of information and several recipes I'd love to try. For those who are wary of sourdough and how to make sourdough starters and such, this book has you covered.
