In this beautiful full-color cookbook, award-winning author Jordan Bourke shows you how simple it is to make nourishing breads; savory 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 flavor back into your baking and beyond. Alongside sumptuous 'regular' bakes - such as the perfect Sourdough bread, Caramelized 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.
Healthy Baking provides over 100 nourishing and mouth-watering ways to revive and reinvent cooking at home. 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.
