Involved with farming, food, and homesteading, John is a well-known speaker at conferences, events, and media including Mother Earth News, Wise Traditions, and Hobby Farms/Chicken Magazine. The Moody family of two old-timers and five rambunctious kids farms and homesteads on 35 acres in Kentucky.

"Time to shut down your Pinterest account and get back to the basics! With the plethora of sourdough information out there, both on the internet and in books, it can be easy to get overwhelmed by this seemingly mystical process. People have been fermenting grains, baking bread, and keeping sour- dough starters alive for millennia using very simple, basic techniques. John and Jessica Moody bring back the simplicity by demonstrating in clear terms how a busy homesteading family, be they rural or urban, can bake a wide range of sourdough-based baked products with ease. To boot, DIY Sourdough will provide you with myriad recipes for feeding your family healthy, digestible baked products for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and in-between. Sourdough needn't be time-consuming or complicated, but once you start trying these recipes out, you may very well want to re-open that Pinterest account to show your followers the nourishing baked goods you've been creating with ease!"

Family bakers will benefit from the experience-driven timetables and recipes that keep the carbs coming without much of a ripple in household time management. A useful and practical book for conscious cooks."
