Let’s dive into the world of artisan breadmaking and explore recipes that will become staples in your kitchen. From classic sourdough to flavorful focaccia, there’s a recipe here for every bread lover.

Sourdough Starter:

Before we begin, it’s essential to have a robust sourdough starter. This natural yeast culture will be the foundation for many of our artisan bread recipes. Combine equal parts of flour and water in a jar, and let it ferment for several days, feeding it daily until it becomes bubbly and active.

Classic Baguette:

Ingredients:

  • 500g bread flour
  • 10g salt
  • 7g instant yeast
  • 350ml water

Instructions:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, salt, and yeast. Gradually add water and mix until a dough forms.
  2. Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 10 minutes until smooth and elastic.
  3. Cover and let it rise until doubled in size, approximately 1 hour.
  4. Divide the dough into portions and shape into baguettes. Let them proof for another 30 minutes.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven at 220°C for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.

Rustic Focaccia:

Ingredients:

  • 400g bread flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 7g instant yeast
  • 300ml water
  • 50ml olive oil
  • Herbs and toppings of your choice (rosemary, olives, cherry tomatoes)

Instructions:

  1. In a bowl, mix flour, salt, and yeast. Add water and 30ml olive oil, kneading until a soft dough forms.
  2. Let the dough rise for 1 hour until doubled in size. Punch down and transfer to a greased baking sheet.
  3. Press the dough into the pan, creating dimples with your fingers. Drizzle with remaining olive oil and sprinkle with herbs and toppings.
  4. Let it rest for 30 minutes, then bake at 200°C for 25-30 minutes until golden and crispy.

These are just a few artisan bread recipes to ignite your passion for baking. Experiment with different flavors, textures, and techniques to create your signature loaves. Remember, the key to perfect artisan bread is patience and love for the craft. Happy baking!
