Coming from Minnesota, sourdough has been a family tradition since my mother started it many years ago. For years I have made sensational waffles and pancakes that my family are in love with and the tradition continues. I used to make great San Francisco French bread. Quit for many years due to working and other activities. I am retired and now trying to make the same bread but have trouble getting a good rise. I found your book to add to other Sourdough books I have. I am hoping you can help me get back to making sensational breads!
