For a long time, I’ve wanted to try making Pain de Campagne, aka French sourdough. The complex flavor and soft and chewy texture make me feel like I’m eating at a bakery in the French countryside.

True artisan sourdough bread recipes require a lot of time and a lot of patience – and I don’t typically have much of either.
