Try a slice of whole wheat sourdough bread with a bit of butter, smoked salmon, garlic, and a sprig of dill or two.

Whole wheat sourdough pairs well with the flavors of butter, cheese, smoked salmon, and cured meats.

Baking bread at home is a rewarding journey, not a destination. Not all loaves look great, as factors like temperature, hydration, fermentation time, etc., affect the performance of my bakes. But I am surprised that every loaf I have baked so far tasted very good and had a great aroma. Family and friends love these loaves of bread.

Baking a decent whole wheat sourdough boule or batard is involved but doable. However, baking sales-worthy sourdough bread consistently well, over and over again, is the mark of a master. One day, I might get there.
