Knjiga UMETNOST KRAŠENJA KRUHA je nastajala najdlje. Imela sem jo v mislih že pri pisanju 1. knjige Drožomanija, ki je izšla že 2017. Čeprav sem ves čas razvijala svoje tehnike krašenja kruha, sem dala prednost drugi knjigi Slana in sladka drožomanija.

V prvih dveh knjigah te naučim peči izvrstne slane in sladke drožaste dobrote.

S tretjo knjigo pa usvojiš različne tehnike krašenja svojih dobrot, naj bodo pripravljene z drožmi ali kvasom.

As Delicious as Bread and Beautiful to Boot

I first started decorating bread in 2012, quite soon after I had first embarked on my sourdough baking journey. The first form of bread art I turned to was bread scoring and as time passed I dipped my toes into other baking techniques described in this e-book as well.

Anyone can learn to bake beautiful boules and battards, regardless of how complicated doing so might seem at first glance. 

This is why in this e-book, I guide you through each process step by step in written, visual, and video form. The QR-codes you will find in this e- link you to a secret corner of my website where you  register and gain access to all 25 video companions that I have filmed exclusively for this e-book.

Let the beauty of your freshly baked loaves shine through in unique artistic ways and wow your loved ones, friends, and coworkers. 

A beautifully decorated loaf that is lovingly made and beautifully packaged is a gift that will never be left to gather dust. I guarantee it!

Master 5 Bread Decorating Techniques and How to Combine Them


Stenciling is the easiest bread decorating technique. I will teach you how to create your own stencil as well as the common household items you can use to decorate your dough. In this e-book you will find 3 types of stenciling described step by step and accompanied by all the tips and tricks you need to know to keep your motifs sharp, clear, and long-lasting.


Transform your dough into your own personal canvas. This chapter contains everything you need to enjoy this form of breadart, from which colors to choose to how to apply them to your dough.


Toppings are a great, quick, and easy way to spice up your loaves. In the e-book you’ll find ideas for creating fantastic motifs of all shapes and sizes and ideas on what you can use to depict them. Plus, you’ll get a very special recipe to create the strongest Sourdough Glue that will really help you get a grip on your toppings. I also demonstrate 6 different ways of decorating your dough with toppings in both written and visual form.


This sharp looking artistic doughmain is the most common method of decorating bread. So I found it only fitting that the art of bread scoring takes up the biggest portion of the e-book. In this chapter I teach you how to tell if your dough is sufficiently proofed, how deep your cuts should be, at which angle you should hold your blade, and how to prevent your bread from bursting at the seams and destroying your design in the oven. Plus, I’ve included 6 different scoring patterns, described step by step in both written and visual form.


In this chapter I teach you how to decorate your loaves with dough ornaments and flowers. You will find out how to use a special decorative dough to make ornaments, which flowers work best for bread decoration and how to dry them to preserve their vibrancy, as well as how and when to apply decorations to your dough. Then we learn how to make a flower basket for your loaf.


The right sequence of steps is crucial when combining techniques, and we tackle it in this chapter. By guiding you through making and baking a boule adorned with a sunflower and the portrait from the cover art, I will show you the best sequence of steps for combining the techniques that you’ve mastered throughout the e-book.

Customer reviews

SOURDOUGH MANIA is a wonderful e-book on baking without yeast written by Anita Šumer. Instead of using yeast, you can use a piece of your dough to raise your bread. This bread “starter” can be handed down through generations. A BEAUTIFUL, WONDERFUL e-book, a truly stunning legacy. A wonderful GIFT for friends, family, or complete strangers who would be interested in seeing and learning one of the most beautiful bread baking traditions. THANK YOU FROM MY HEART, dear ANITA, you wonderful magician!
dr. Manca Košir
We won’t be baking bread “the old fashioned way” but rather using traditional bread baking methods to unlock modern innovative ways of creating culinary masterpieces. Anita Šumer’s e-books are a testament to this fact as they expand the traditional uses of a sourdough starter from making different types of bread to creating floury masterpieces such as pastry, focaccias, and many more. This e-book challenges our modern culinary efforts by leaning on cultural heritage and giving our region the cultural recognition that will help solidify its identity in the world for years to come.
prof. dr. janez bogataj
Ever since I bought your first e-book we no longer buy bread at the store, because I love baking it myself so much. Industrially produced bread can’t compare to its sourdough counterpart. Sourdough is delicious, healthy, and always gone in the blink of an eye. My compliments to the chef!
Anita’s courses are always something truly special. Her energy and her love of sourdough is addicting and makes you want to start using a sourdough starter as well. Her carefully thought out baking steps, recipes, and tips guide you to creating delicious bakes that you are proud of by the end of each course. I’m not a beginner to sourdough, but I learn something new and incredibly useful every single time I attend a course!

zato bom od vsake prodane knjige namenila 2 € Inštitutu Lunina vila. …


“Lunina vila, Inštitut za zaščito otrok, so. p., je zasebna, neprofitna organizacija v Sloveniji, katere poslanstvo je zdravljenje in preprečevanje travm pri otrocih (zlorabe, zanemarjanje, spolne zlorabe, smrt bližnjega, dolgotrajna bolezen, imigracija …). Lunino vilo vodi prepričanje, da lahko z nudenjem varnega, sočutnega in prijaznega okolja, otrokom, ki so doživeli kakršno koli obliko travme omogoči, da premagajo njene negativne posledice in iz nje zrastejo v zdrave in srečne mladostnike in kasneje odrasle osebe.”


O avtorici

Sem mednarodno uveljavljena mojstrica peke z drožmi, avtorica knjižnih uspešnic Drožomanija in njenega nadaljevanja Slana in sladka drožomanija. Moje poslanstvo je širjenje ljubezni in strasti do boljšega kruha in drugih drožbrot po Sloveniji in svetu ter moto ”droži v vsako drožino”. 

Brez droži mi živeti ni, zato si želim, da tudi tebe zagrabi drožomanija! Tako nas bo čim več jedlo boljši kruh! 

Moj Instagram sourdough_mania je pritegnil pozornost številnih tujih medijev ravno zato, ker je bil moj kruh drugačen, lepo okrašen s šablonami, zarezami, poslikavami. Ker je bil dober kot kruh in lep kot slika.
