"Vanessa’s work on sourdough and the gut microbiome is changing the way we think of food, health and baking." – Tim Spector, author of The Diet Myth

Sourdough is the tastiest and most nutritious bread you can make but it has a reputation for being both technically demanding and time-consuming.

Vanessa Kimbell's new book 10-Minute Sourdough is a foolproof guide to sourdough baking without lengthy kneading, stretching, folding and shaping.

From Butternut Squash Boule and Oat Pocket Breads to Roasted Barley Malt Bagels, Carrot & Caraway Loaf and Caramel, Walnut & Banana Bread, none of the fuss-free, no-knead recipes requires more than 10 minutes’ work in total (not including time in the oven).

Organised into seasonal chapters, with an additional chapter on breads for celebrations, the recipes all follow one master timing plan and many of them can be baked in a tin.

Vanessa Kimbell, "Britain's queen of sourdough", runs The Sourdough School in Northamptonshire, where she teaches sourdough breadmaking and baking classes to students from around the world. A regular BBC radio journalist in the UK, she is a third generation baker of Italian descent and trained in several French bakeries. Follow her on Instagram: @vanessakimbell & @sourdoughschool
