The Real Bread Campaign’s first recipe book.
It contains around 90 recipes for genuine sourdough and other long ferment Real Breads.
They range from a basic white loaf, to Laotian kalpao and Friesian fryske sûkerbôle. It is brought to life by around 70 full colour photographs by Victoria Harley.
It is published in the USA and UK by Nourish Books.
All author royalties go to support the work of the Real Bread Campaign and buying the book direct from us (rather than, say, a tax avoiding online store) means our charity receives even more of what you pay to help fund our work.
So, thanks in advance for buying the book for yourself or as a gift.
Even more thanks if you choose to join the Campaign or buy our other book Knead to Know at the same time.

If you want / need the book sent to an address other than your credit/debit card billing address (eg it's a non-UK card or the book's a gift), when you make your order please email the delivery details to: firstname.lastname@example.org

As Real Bread bakers are reminding people, long and slow tends to be far more satisfying than a quick finish.
While throwing all sorts of artificial additives into the mix, one very important natural ingredient that industrial loaf fabricators tend to do their best to do away with is time. Even some domestic recipe writers seem to be in a race to the finish line, instructing their readers to use fast-action yeast, added sugar and warm proving, declaring with glee how little time the loaf will take.
Far from farinaceous folly, a long-proved dough has more time to develop flavour, tends to produce a less crumbly loaf and, in the case of genuine sourdough, might even offer health benefits.
Slow Dough: Real Bread shares secrets from the experts on how to make a huge array of sourdoughs and other slow-rise breads at home. You’ll learn a range of classic and original international loaves, from basic brown, white and rye breads; to impressive fig and fennel sourdough, and goats' cheese and honey maslin.
You'll learn how to make a sourdough starter and other pre-ferments, as well as the fundamental processes: kneading, proving and baking. Treating Real Bread with the respect it deserves, the book also includes stale bread recipes including chai spiced bread and butter pudding, panzanella, and breadcrumb pakoras so that you don't waste a crumb.
As the Real Bread Campaign champions not just additive-free baking, but also bringing it back to the hearts of our local communities, Slow Dough: Real Bread celebrates each of the 70 bakers who contributed recipes. They include long-established bakers, such as the Campaign's cofounder Andrew Whitley, and many of the new generation of experts leading the Real Bread revolution.
The Real Bread Campaign supporter network extends to more than 20 countries and the book's contibutors hail from as far afield as Italy, Croatia, Germany, Korea and Australia.
Thank you to all of the bakers who donated recipes and sorry if yours didn’t make it!
If you run a bakery, baking school, bookshop or other business and would like to stock the book, please send your bookseller enquiry to Monica at Nourish: monica.mistry [at] watkinspublishing.com
