Bake sourdough bread

The simplest possible, no-knead sourdough bread how-to.

Why this: Making a single loaf of sourdough bread instantly takes you back, way back, to the human roots of food, and fire, cooking and chemistry, and where the natural world meets our human curiosity and innovation, how we attempt to harness nature to our ends. Practical, healthful, tasty, trendy, even…and a fundamental connection to our deep past.
