Do Sourdough - Andrew Whitley. Nice little book that I started out with and still go back to despite having a whole range of more detailed books on the topic now.

I've just bought this. I think I need to sit down and inwardly digest it! It's the thought of making one sort of starter and then kneading it into anotherdough that's phasing me. I did try it, but although it was delicious, the loaf was a flat disaster.

On a visit to Guédelon Castle, France (where they're building a castle using only the techniques and materials used in the Middle Ages) I wandered into the bookshop and found a brilliant book: Learn How to Make Your Bread With Natural Leaven, by Henri Granier. It's in French, but with Google translate and desperation to get to grips with the method that wasn't a problem.
