Nourishing breads, wholesome cakes, ancient grains and bubbling ferments
In this beautiful full-colour cookbook, award-winning author Jordan Bourke shows you how simple it is to make nourishing breads; savoury tarts and bakes; and indulgent yet wholesome sweet treats.
Reclaiming ‘healthy’ for what it really means – nutritious, balanced food made from natural ingredients – these are recipes to bring joy and flavour back into your baking and beyond. Alongside sumptuous ‘regular’ bakes – such as the perfect Sourdough bread, Caramelised Onion, Sweet Potato and Rye Tart, and Italian Strawberry and Chocolate Chunk Cake – Jordan also gives ancient grains and pickles a western update, revealing how easy it is to make abundant salads, bubbling ferments, seasonal preserves and more.
Using alternatives to refined sugar and featuring lots of options to make recipes gluten- and dairy-free, you’ll quickly discover how ferments and grains can invigorate your cooking – from cultivating the perfect sourdough starter to creating delicious salads and decadent cakes. With chapters on sourdough and yeasted bread; sweet and savouring baking; how to make a meal from your bakes; ancient grains; preserves, dressings and oils; and ferments and pickles, Healthy Baking provides over 100 nourishing and mouth-watering ways to revive and reinvent cooking at home.
