I’m an avid sourdough baker with years of experience baking naturally leavened bread at home in a busy family household.
I discovered sourdough bread shortly after deciding to take my health more seriously with years of suffering from a whole host of food allergies and intolerances.
I cut out all processed foods and went back to basics; eating clean, real, wholesome foods.
It was shortly after this that my sourdough journey began….
I discovered the wonderful flavor of sourdough bread and noticed that my body didn’t react badly to it the way it did with commercial breads. In fact, I felt a whole lot better once I switched exclusively to sourdough bread.
But sometimes, store bought sourdough bread wasn’t truly sourdough. (And I learned this the hard way whenever I ate it). The only way to be sure it was real sourdough bread was to make it myself at home.
This was when I learned to bake sourdough bread that tasted……meh.
But thankfully that didn’t stop me from continuing to improve and experiment.
Over the years, I learned many different techniques and methods, and after much trial and error, I eventually developed my own way of baking through integrating everything I had learned, that gave me great results every time.
Nowadays, teaching others how to bake healthy, nutritious sourdough bread has become a real passion of mine, and I’ve put this website together to reach out to as many people as possible.
As featured on BBC Radio, in addition to the information on this site, I now run an online course, teaching aspiring bakers how to master the art of sourdough bread in simple step by step lessons.
