Thank you for sharing our passion for real bread!

We'd say our passion has developed into more of an obsession with sourdough. We believe it's our purpose to showcase the versatility of this wonderful product and tell the story of real bread, made and used the way it should be. 

Beyond Bread and Butter: A Celebration of Sourdough is a fresh perspective on a bread cookbook. One that moves beyond the humble bread recipe and takes you on a journey, showcasing inspiring recipes for fresh and old bread that you've just made or purchased from your local artisan bakery.

As you progress through the book you'll understand the history and art of making real bread at home, the benefits of sourdough, how to get amazing results at home, what to look for when buying bread and most importantly, what to do with it when you have it, beyond bread and butter.

What Makes Our Project Different?

In this book, we offer a concise and easy to comprehend guide to creating a variety of delicious sourdoughs, and how you can best use it from the minute it comes out of the oven, through to when it becomes lovely, firm and stale. We want to show you how you can use the entire loaf, so no crumb goes to waste. No longer will you have an excuse to throw out any bread! 

Working in a commercial artisan bakery, we see how much bread is wasted on a daily basis, largely due to a lack of innovative recipes featuring old bread. We intend to address this issue by providing over 65 recipes using fresh and old bread in exciting and innovative ways.

We've structured Beyond Bread and Butter into three sections. The first explains 12 methods for making a variety of excellent sourdough at home. The second demonstrates brilliant ways to use fresh bread. Our third and most exciting section shows how to use old bread in innovative and exciting ways. Our recipes include varied dishes such as sourdough ice cream, sourdough pasta, and sourdough skordalia. 

These recipes range from the simple, through to the complex, and allow for any level of home cook to become successful in making these recipes, and of course, impressing friends and family. Each section increases in complexity as you progress, allowing you to build on the recipes you have learnt, and begin to experiment with your own variations.

Our Team

We feel that collaboration is at the heart of all meaningful projects. This is why we teamed up with other designers, artists and craftspeople at the top of their game to begin working on this project.

Together, our team will create a large, beautifully designed, hardcover book, measuring 13 inches (33.02 cm) by 10 inches (25.4cm) per page. Our vision is to ensure each image is clean, refined, and highly considered. Beautiful photography will be without doubt one of the highlights of our book as each image strives to capture the nuanced characteristics in each loaf and recipe. 

We've selected a 157gsm matte art paper to enhance the tactile experience and create vivid colours for the photography. This weight also give you confidence that it's sturdy enough withstand the trials of a home kitchen. 

Our reasons for self-publishing is to ensure that we control the quality from start to finish. Call it our perfectionism, thirst for a challenge, or our passion for collaborating with others but we know the result will be something special.


Costs:

Our reason for launching this project on the Kickstarter platform is to reach an audience who share our passion for crafting real bread, cooking, and reducing our food waste. Through successfully preselling our cookbook, we'll have the ability to cover the capital investment needed to produce and print the highest quality book. 

The $50,000 we're asking for covers excellent photography, high quality production details (i.e. hardcovers), some final recipe development, high quality paper and printing, shipping and customs clearance to us, Kickstarter fees, and and a few nice details throughout the book (but that's a surprise!).


Timeline

Assuming our successful launch, the book is going to print in August, with our first copies arriving at the bakery in mid-November, ready for Christmas presents!

Risks and challenges

Should the project not be funded, all money invested through Kickstarter will be returned and we will look at doing a smaller print run or attempt to get the book published through other avenues. We will do our utmost to ensure that you get Beyond Bread and Butter in your hands by Christmas, regardless of whether Kickstarter is successful. This is the first project that we are funding through kickstarter and thoroughly look forward to the experience, and often challenge, of crowdfunding.
