Take Your Gluten Free Bread Making To The Next Level, Using Natural Sourdough Starter Sourdough bread is within the reach of every gluten-free baker.  This  course shows that all you need is a naturally gluten free sourdough starter to leaven your dough, and a knowledge of the range of flours and binders.   This course is built around three different GF sourdough starters, which you will make yourself from scratch, using organic brown rice flour, buckwheat flour and sorghum flour. You will learn how to use your starters to prepare leaven for making 6 different sourdough recipes, including rustic boule, little rolls, a sandwich loaf and even sourdough pizza.    Once you have grasped the basics of  sourdough fermentation, you'll be off on one of baking's greatest adventures, inventing sourdough recipes of your own! Recipes are either vegan or suggest vegan substitutions.
