Maurizio Leo’s beloved blog The Perfect Loaf is the go-to destination for sourdough bakers. His NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLING cookbook offers impeccably detailed techniques, foolproof recipes, and Maurizio's generous teaching style that explains the fundamentals of sourdough—plus the tools and confidence to explore beyond.

Featuring stone milled Rouge de Bordeaux with a touch of Gazelle Rye blended into a high-protein bread flour, you will experience complex wheat flavors with malty notes, a nutty aftertaste, and a decidedly crispy, crunchy crust. In short, you will experience "The Perfect Loaf".

The Perfect Loaf flour

This is the first time I’ve made sourdough bread using this flour. At first I was very concerned that the dough wasn’t rising very much in the bulk fermentation stage or overnight in the proofing baskets. And I know the starter was good. But once the loaves went into the oven they took off, and the bread turned out great ~ good rise, crust, and flavor.

I think is an excellent product. It is pricey though.
