The Gift of Bread Sourdough School operates six days a week with hands on classes teaching people how to make wonderful bread, quickly, efficiently and cost effectively.
We provide classes for a nominal £50.00 in Somerset. You go home with four loaves and starter.
In the past, bread was a real food. Ask any Roman soldier. He marched on it all day long.
The 'staff of life' also had real health benefits, it was filled with nutrition and is very easy to digest. It was also very practical to make. Everyone made it.
This is the bread we show you how to make! It also saves you money.
We demonstrate making sourdough cakes from left over starter
with NO ADDED SUGAR. Everyone agrees they are delicious. See the video below for great suitability with diabetics.

Regardless of how good the bread tastes, how easy on the system to digest and whatever health benefits it has, if it is not practical and easy to make… people will not make it! Time is precious. We teach a method that lets the sourdough microbiota do all the work for you. Less than six minutes hands on time produces three loaves of stunning bread. And… no kneading.
We have a detailed page on the extensive health benefits of wholegrain long fermented sourdough bread. You would not expect 'bread' to be more beneficial for you than fresh fruit and vegetables – research papers say 'yes'. Have a look at the academic papers we provide.
Is sourdough bread fattening?
People tell us over and over how filling this bread is. It keeps them totally satisfied, preventing the need to snack between meals. Additionaly, research shows that you will lose weight eating this bread. The fermenting action of the sourdough microbiota extracts all the nutrition from the wholegrain wheat producing an ultra digestible and nourishing meal. You can live on this bread. It was always described as the Staff of Life!
We live in chaotic times with more to come. If it is not financial meltdowns, (2008) then it is world wide pandemics. Don't forget the effects of global warming creeping up on us.
It really is sensible to be able to be somewhat food independent. How to make a substantial healthy food – on a budget – that you can live on should be a priority.
The bread we teach you how to make is naturally low in carbohydrates. It is particularly suitable for diabetics and also other diets that need some gentle treatment for your digestion. The stoneground flour has a slow release, and we use sprouted grain flour as well, ensuring a low carbohydrate level, even for those on a ketogenic diet. It is beneficial for weight loss. All this and at the same time producing a fabulous tasting bread that is very practical to make.
