Product description


“Ford’s cookbook, New World Sourdough, is full of deep expertise that answers many of these questions, but it’s also an unusually warm, friendly invitation to making sourdough bread, a subgenre of the baking world that isn’t known for being so inclusive and approachable.” ― The New York Times Magazine

“With his book, Ford sets out to clear up the notion that sourdough means the overly engineered Tartine loaf. It can be that. But it can also be any naturally leavened bread, like pan de coco baked in Honduras with naturally occurring yeasts.” ― Epicurious

New World Sourdough is Ford’s exploration of making breads from North, Central, and South America with natural fermentation, but it’s also an opening volley against a stale idea of what artisan bread should be.” ― Food & Wine

“If you've thought about baking your own sourdough, New World Sourdough by Bryan Ford is here to simplify the process. With practical tips and techniques, you will feel empowered and excited to dive into the wide variety of baked goods, from warm pita to sweet brioche.” ― POPSUGAR

“Since they couldn’t break bread with friends during a pandemic, enthusiastic home bakers everywhere turned to making their own. Bryan Ford’s blog Artisan Bryan and his New World Sourdough cookbook became the go-to guides. The perfect recipe? Flour, warm water and patience.” ― People

“His recipes are refreshingly straightforward―eschewing complicated jargon for easy-to-follow instructions―and once you’ve mastered the simplest of breads, you can level up to breads you may have previously thought were not possible to make at home.” ― Chowhound

“‘The ease of bread baking seems to be a sudden revelation, but people have been baking bread for thousands of years,’ says baker Bryan Ford, author of New World Sourdough. ‘When a crisis sets in, we resort to our primal instincts which involve making our own food. My blog traffic is through the roof.’” ― Forbes

New World Sourdough honors Ford’s Central American roots with sourdough-based recipes for semitas de yema, pan de coco and flour tortillas made with coconut milk.” ― Huffington Post

“Ripping sourdough in half is an apt metaphor for what Ford has accomplished with his first cookbook―refusing the tidy cross section dismantles the idea that all bread should have the same polished aesthetic qualities and be perfectly curated for Instagram. But maybe a better way of putting it would be to say that Ford’s New World Sourdough is taking the concept of sourdough and burning it all down.” ― Taste Magazine

“With the help of Bryan Ford, sourdough will never be boring again. Even for those uninterested in baking, Ford’s story holds lessons about reaching for a passion while staying grounded by your root.” ― Study Breaks

About the Author

Bryan Ford is a bread baker from New Orleans who is known for experimenting with baking techniques. Bryan infuses his passion for his Latin American culture into his recipes on his popular blog Artisan Bryan (artisanbryan.com) and Instagram (@artisanbryan). Viewed in over 100 countries, Ford is especially known for his sourdough pan de coco recipe, inspired by a traditional Honduran bread. Bryan is currently the Head Baker of the Ironside Bakery, an artisanal bakery that focuses on using local, seasonal ingredients and organic grains to make rustic sourdough breads and viennoiserie.



Rugbrød is both delicious and interesting because of how many different textures are involved. And, because it doesn’t use white flour, it is packed with more nutritious flavor. So, this time around, I want to explore the density of a more authentic bread you might find in Honduras but also incorporate different textures into the bread, similar to a rugbrød.

Reviewed in the United States on 6 August 2020

I preordered Bryan Ford’s - New World Sourdough. Did not receive it till August 2nd- Amazon said even though I preordered, they were sold out. I must say I was disappointed when I learnt that he had a list of errors in the book- which he addressed on his blog. (See the attached pic or go on his blog - before you try the recipes) Since I got the second print run I thought I would get the revised book. I received the book without the changes.
Anyway the recipes looked amazing and I promptly tried the Choco Pan De Coco, Bananas Foster Sourdough and Tortillas De Harina. My home smells divine!
Cannot wait to try more of the recipes.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hard to Read the Small, Light Font on the Gray Background - Not Enough Contrast for Older Bakers
Reviewed in the United States on 12 August 2020
I was so very much looking forward to getting this book, but I CAN'T READ the bound book. The FONT TYPE IS LIGHT, and the FONT SIZE IS SMALL, making reading on a gray background very hard because there is NO CONTRAST. ITALIC are not appropriate for reading at 10 pt on gray. In order to bake, i have to make a blown up copy, which defeats the purpose of purchasing the book.

Also, it's HARD TO BAKE along when you have to FLIP back and forth many times to the front of the book to follow steps that are not outlined right there in the recipe. Who wants dough covered marks on the pages of their new book.

For example, my recipe is on page 131: Making final dough: Step 1, Mixing dough: Method 2 (page 27). Shape and proof dough: Step 2, Shaping Dough, Method 1-Tension Roll (page 28).

When you're using any recipe, you expect to have all instructions included on the page(s) of that recipe. I will look on your blog for the corrections, and will mark them in the book, before I begin baking. It'll take a bit longer to get to the end result, but hoping that the results are great as others have said.

I hope this review helps others who are excited to try the recipes, but also for them to know what to expect when reading, and following the recipes as they bake.

UPDATE 1: I tried the Hard Dough recipe and it's NOT like the original. It's much softer, and is a sandwich loaf (see photo). It's great tasting, but not like the real thing. I guess “new world” means it shouldn’t taste or have the texture even slightly resembling the original! UPDATE 1a: Add some whole wheat flour to this recipe and the flavor will be a bit more like the original, but the texture is still "new world."

UPDATE 2: Someone else posted that there are no page numbers for the recipes in the table of contents, so you're flipping through the book trying to find a recipe.

As mentioned by the same person regarding techniques, there is a lot of white/wasted space, and even if the font was larger, different page layouts could have used that white space in better so that each recipe could have included all technique information without making the book thicker.

Also, I think the larger than life images in the book could easily have been downsized to still fit a recipe with techniques on a page.
