Paul Hollywood shows how to cultivate your own sourdough starter, harnessing natural, airborne yeasts to leaven and give amazing flavour to breads.
Sourdough is the ultimate bread for flavour and texture. If you're passionate about bread making then you've got to try making your own. Paul shows you how to cultivate your own sourdough starter, harnessing natural, airborne yeasts to leaven and give amazing flavour to your breads.
This is Paul's favourite bread, so he starts by baking a classic sourdough in the traditional banneton, which gives the crust its characteristic ring pattern. From this basic recipe, he makes the ultimate sweet bread, a white chocolate and raspberry sourdough - a unique, colourful bread, delicious on its own but also the base of an unbelievable summer pudding.
But if you really want to show off your sourdough skills and treat your family to a feast, Paul will show you how to serve up a mouth-watering tuna nicoise salad with homemade tapenade and a stunning, leaf-shaped sourdough fougasse bursting with olives.
