Modern Sourdough: Sweet and Savoury Recipes from Margot Bakery

Modern Sourdough: Sweet and Savoury Recipes from Margot Bakery Review

In Tahini and Rye, Michelle Eksheri shows you how to make mouth-watering treats from the basics (bagels, sourdough starter and bread), through to classics with a twist (challah bread and butter pudding, babka, rhubarb and custard danish, pistachio and flower shortbread). The secrets to the seemingly complex are broken down in an easy step-by-step guide so that the perfect sourdough loaf will no longer be a mystery, opening up a world for the sourdough starter to hot cross buns, croissants and so much more. The provenance of ingredients is highly valued, creating seasonal twists such as wild garlic buns and flavour-forward bakes like rye brownies. 

With over 100 recipes covering bread, biscuits, buns and cakes, desserts, savoury baking and store cupboard essentials, Tahini and Rye is full of recipes you'll want to make again and again.
