Sourdough Sandwich Bread
When you think of sourdough bread, you probably envision a crusty, chewy, artisan-style loaf. But this bread, made with levain (an overnight starter based on sourdough starter) is a richly flavored, soft-textured sandwich loaf, perfect for all of your favorite sandwich fillings, including fresh tomatoes. (See "tips" below for details on how to make the best tomato sandwich.)
