The first time I followed Chad Robertson's recipe for Basic Country Loaf (homemade sourdough bread) it was a mess. The good thing is that even bad bread is delicious. But I persisted and now I can produce loaves that look like this.

And it's just as delicious as it looks. If you want to try it I recommend Tartine Bread but it's currently out of stock most places, and there are many books that are quite good I'm told. Four Water Salt Yeast is one and Poilâne is another. The whole idea is that you have no need for yeast because you're using a sourdough starter which is alive. So the bread is fermented and healthier for you. My current starter:

This is why I am completely impressed that Pink's very first attempt at making this bread came out beautifully! Look at this. Wouldn't you buy that in a shop?!

She even forgot to score it. Nature took care of that, too. Anyone can bake this bread, it just takes time and patience but the first attempt is not usually so pretty.
