    "Great book"

    This is a great book for those who want to learn about the history and care of sourdough culture. I encourage anyone who I share my culture with to purchase this book.

    "Interesting book"

    I found the book interesting and well worth reading. Lots of helpful tips, that will make you stop and say, "So that's what I have been doing wrong." If you love baking bread and are new to baking with sourdough, I feel sure you will find this book very helpful. I keep a copy of this book in my office. When I need a break from the computer, I pick up the book and review a few pages. I keep finding tips that I missed the first time.

    It was not flashy and distracting. It provided the information like a well practiced school teacher. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and would share it with others.

    "Interesting information, but disappointing recipes"

    The description of this book made it sound great, but I was overall disappointed. The recipes are very general and are vegan or vegetarian (which is not clear in the description). I like like to include milk, eggs, and butter in my baking. I was looking for something with specific recipes, but it just had a lot of basic guidelines. Good things about the book include an interesting history, some good tips on caring for your starter, and good baking guidelines. After reading it through, this book is probably just going to sit on my shelf until I can resell it. I found other books to be more helpful.

    "Incorrect Recipe"

    There is a lot of information on the history of bread, but if you are a beginner the book is difficult to use. It lacks a clearly worded, well organized basic recipe for using sourdough starter to make a basic loaf. - the instructions are not well written. In addition we found the weights of starter to flour ratios in the basic recipe to be printed incorrectly - they need to be reversed to work correctly!

  • The Art of Gluten-Free Sourdough Baking

    26 recipes for gluten-free sourdough breads, muffins, pancakes, and pizza.

    The Art of Gluten-Free Sourdough Baking


    "great purchase so far"

    I'm new to fermenting foods, and since my daughter is gluten-free, I knew I'd need this book in order to ferment her breads myself. I'll give a more comprehensive review once I've tried more of the recipes, but let me just go ahead and say WOW. This book takes you on the author's own baking journey in a well-laid out format, and gives many recipe variations to suit each individual's dietary needs and tastes. She does a very good job of explaining the science behind gluten-free sourdough baking so that the reader has a better understanding and confidence at creating/troubleshooting his/her own breads. I'm very pleased with this purchase thus far.

    "Excellent value"

    This is a beautiful book, spiral for ease of reading recipes, clear directions and help topics with photos that show how dough should look. Anyone starting out making gluten-free breads will definitely want this book!

    "Excellent resource."

    I'm excited to be trying gluten-free fermented breads. I've not been happy with other gluten-free bread books. The fermented process makes sense and the book takes all of the mystery out of the process.

    "don't need the book"

    If you've ever used or worked with sour dough starter you really don't need the book. I've used ideas from it. I've found that I don't have to be as careful and exact as they would make you believe

    - Marcia


    I am quite disappointed in this book. The format and binding are rather "cheap", especially for a book that costs over $27. I was expecting a better value for the price. I have been gluten-free for several years, but am new to sourdough baking. Sharon's techniques and recipes seem quite complicated and unpractical for a mother with young children and a busy household. I will be returning my copy for a refund.
