Sourdough No-Knead Bread

Nothing is more comforting than home baked sourdough bread, crispy and slightly chewy… Before I start, I must admit that I almost gave up on the sourdough starter, not to mention the frustration and the defeat feeling and on top of it I really felt insulted since I had so much training in microbiology laboratory.  Well, determination won the case…and I finally cultivated a few jars of very healthy sourdough starter.  Therefore with all my “manipulations” and add a bit here, take a bit there, I am not sharing a recipe for the starter…as you can easily search on the internet and look for a recipe that best suit you. What I am sharing with you is the wonderful bread [...]

Of course being “me” I am never content in just following recipes, I always have to come up with something new…so I decided to make flatbreads with the dough…the variation are limitless, with garlic and parsley, ground pepper and parmesan, ham [...]
