      Description
      One of the oldest yet perhaps the simplest and tastiest breads you can make, Sourdough needs only flour, water, salt – and a little time. In Do Sourdough, Andrew Whitley – a baker for over 30 years who has 'changed the way we think about bread' – shares his simple method for making this deliciously nutritious bread at home.

      Having taught countless bread-making workshops, Andrew knows that we don't all have the time and patience to bake our own. Now, with time-saving tips – such as slotting the vital fermentation stage into periods when we're asleep or at work, this is bread baking for Doers. Find out:

      • the basic tools and ingredients you'll need
      • how to make your own sourdough starter
      • simple method for producing wonderful loaves time and again
      • ideas and recipe suggestions for fresh and days-old bread

      The result isn't just fresh bread made with your own hands, it's the chance to learn new skills, make something to share with family and friends, and change the world – one loaf at a time.
      Bio
      According to the BBC Food & Farming award judges, Andrew Whitley has 'changed the way we think about bread.' A baker for over 30 years, his company Bread Matters runs the most authoritative bread-making courses in the UK — popular with enthusiastic amateurs, professional cooks and community bakers alike. Originally a producer with the BBC Russian Service, Andrew left in 1976 to found the Village Bakery Melmerby in the Lake District. Over the next two decades it became one of the country's leading organic bakeries and the first to supply Waitrose. He left in 2002 to do a Masters in Food Policy and write Bread Matters (Fourth Estate 2006). It became a bestseller and won the André Simon 2006 Food Award. In 2008, Andrew co-founded the Real Bread Campaign which aims to bring good bread to every neighbourhood in the UK.

      Description
      Cooking outdoors can be a challenge – building your own fire for starters – but the rewards are great: a hearty stew eaten under a starlit sky; grilled mackerel on the beach; ash-baked flatbreads plucked from the glowing embers, torn and shared.

      Tom Herbert, a fifth-generation baker and true advocate for this way of life, makes it easy. Armed with your hero ingredients, essential kit, and some kindling, you'll be inspired to leave the kitchen for an outdoor adventure – even if it's mere miles from home.

      In Do Wild Baking over 50 delicious recipes – from Beer Bread to Hot Smoked Salmon – are grouped by location: Beach, Mountain, River and Forest. And if rain prevails, most can be recreated at home.

      This is a call for a more relaxed, inclusive style of cooking and baking. It's not just about delicious meals shared, but the conversations ignited, the senses reawakened, and above all, the memories created.
      Bio

      Description
      So much goes unnoticed. We multi-task, switch between screens, work faster. When was the last time you paused to consider a beautifully made object or stunning natural landscape? Yet this is when our spirits lift, our soul is restored.

      Designer Alan Moore invites us to rethink not only what we produce – whether it's a website, a handmade chair, or a business – but how and why. With examples including Pixar, Apple, and Blitz Motorcycles, we are encouraged to ask: Is it useful and considered. Is it a thing of beauty?

      Do Design will inspire you to:
      • Improve your creative process
      • Raise the quality and craft of your work
      • Consider the experience as much as the product
      • Adopt simplicity, utility and honesty as guiding principles

      We are creative beings. We love to make things. This book will inspire you to create better things, for better reasons. Things that people will love – for a long time to come. Some say beauty is a luxury. But what if it is key to creating a better world for us all?
