About this title


""Sourdough is a magical food"", as author Ruth Allman was fond of saying. There are folks in Alaska who claim the staff of life in their sourdough pots is more than 40 years old or date it to the time when Fairbanks was a mining town.  Handwwritten to match the old-timers recipes, this book includes directions for several starters that can ripen in varying times, three days to one year.

In this witty and useful last word on sourdough cookery, there are more than 95 recipes, loads of time-tested advice for the novice, and plenty of lore for sourdough fans.

In this classic last word on sourdough cookery, there are recipes for Alaskan frontier staples (hotcakes to doughnuts) with time-tested advice and love.

From the Author:

"Sourdough is a magical food!  We lived out of the sourdough pot---we were the entire population [at Tongass Lodge, Excursion Inlet, Alaska] and I had to use my imagination or my husband and I would have eaten the same thing all the time."
