This is just one of the countless links that features this bread recipe. It is the easiest and MOST delicious bread I have ever made.http://www.nytimes.com/2006/11/08/dining/08mini.html
This was featured on the Martha Stewart show a few months ago and the video (if you need it) is still available on youtube or elsewhere on line.
You basically mix up a very wet dough, leave it sit about 18 hours, roughly shape it into a loaf and let it rise a bit, plop it into a dutch oven that has heated to 500 degrees and let it bake about 40 minutes, uncovering half way to brown the top.
I recommend you try it. While not technically a sourdough, the bread does ferment somewhat during the long resting period.
If you want to use sourdough I recommend you find a recipe (they're all pretty much the same) and start one. You mix it up, let it sit a few days, then you have to divide it. It needs to be cared for and used frequently so if you will be doing lots of baking, I say go for it - but if bread will be a once in awhile thing for you, then I say use this recipe. Good luck and enjoy!
