“It is beyond bread’
The microbiome is at the core of our research on bread and this is the Bread & Guts workshop – we will be creating our bread around a savoury sourdough theme with a focus on using and combining ingredients with evidence of a beneficial effect on the gut microbiome. We’ll be creating a blend of flour, milling the grains to make fresh flour and creating new formulae for some beautiful gut-friendly sourdough bread.
What is a sourdough workshop?
What will we make? We don’t know the exact recipes we are going to make yet as we make the decisions of what to bake on the Monday when we meet for the first time, however these things we will likely make:
- A sourdough bread loaf formula
- A fermented cake
- A probiotic accompaniment such as cultured butter
- A symbiotic recipe such as a soup to eat with the bread
- Vegetable or fruit probiotic pickles such as kimchi or sauerkraut
- A fruit compote
