Modern Sourdough, Sweet and Savoury Recipes from Margot Bakery, by Michelle Eshkeri and Patricia Niven. There's so much more to Sourdough than just Bread! You'll find recipes for cakes, buns, savoury bakes, store cupboard wonders, plus a selection of non-sourdough favourites from the bakery. These are recipes you'll be making again and again,because they taste fantastic, are good for you, and look sooo good!

The big feature here is a step-by-step guide to making a sourdough starter. And of course the whole gambit of methods and techniques from folding and shaping to scoring and baking, Michelle demonstrates how to make her signature loaves and naturally-leavened pizzas, challah, focaccia, French pastries, brioche and babka.

This excellent book gives you over 100 mouth-watering recipes and will expand your understanding of sourdough and its potential.

In 2016 Michelle opened a bakery in a dilapidated shop in East Finchley, London, just around the corner from her home. It was an instant hit and became an experiment in pushing the boundaries of what a local bakery could be. Michelle drew on her Jewish and Australian heritage, and specialised in sourdough leavened pastries and sweet doughs alongside more traditional breads. She takes it to a whole new level!
