David's San Francisco Sourdough Quest
I was inspired by David's San Francisco Sourdough Quest (see recipe link below) and set out to duplicate his fantastic loaves. I stayed as close to the recipe as possible. I did follow his instructions for the starter and retarded it, as he described. I was able to catch some of his suggested changes to the recipe that he amended later and added 10% whole wheat flour. The loaves were a bit small, and I wondered if I didn't use enough flour, but I did weigh the ingredients per the recipe. The dough was wonderful to work with throughout and really came up this morning during their room temperature proof after the overnight proof in the fridge. The oven spring was really wonderful as well. The crust was excellent and very chewy. My husband rated it very highly, so I will be making it again. Thanks, David!
