In the first part, the volume provides the theoretical knowledge necessary to understand the phenomena of baking through different sections: the biology of flour, salt and water; the biology and analysis of sourdough; the structure, texture, flavor and nutritional qualities of sourdough bread; and cereals. 

The second part, devoted to practice, includes a technical description of the different stages of baking, as well as recipes for sourdough breads made with wheat and rye flours and gluten-free flours such as rice and buckwheat, pastry recipes (panettone, brioche, kugelhopf, gâche, etc.) and a section of appendices. In total, more than 30 recipes with illustrated step-by-step instructions.
