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.
Step-by-step video instructions from expert artisan bakers, with lifetime access to the course once you have downloaded it.
PDFs to print out with all the recipes,tips and techniques.
Tutors available to respond to your questions online.
A device on which to watch the video lectures, and read the written articles.
Instructions for making the starters are provided. They take between 3- 5 days to be ready for use, so you should plan ahead for your first baking day.
