grain-free sourdough bread

sourdough bread

You see that? That gorgeous bread with the crisp burnished crust? That is gluten-free sourdough bread.

And it’s wonderful bread.

Our book editor, Justin, texted me this photo from the set of the photo shoot from our next cookbook, American Classics Reinvented. I burst into happy tears. I’ve been working on this sourdough bread recipe for 5 years. I’m not kidding. 5 years. The day the food stylist was making the sourdough bread, and then knowing the photographer was going to be shooting it, I was in nerves all day. (And we were filming the video for our Kickstarter at the same time.) I stared at it, and there it was. Great gluten-free sourdough bread.

As Justin wrote to me, “Everyone is blown away by the bread. Forget gluten-free, it’s just great. It’s so sour!”

That was a good day.

Oh, and by the way, if you help fully fund our Kickstarter, someday you can make this sourdough bread with our grain-free flour blend in your home. Grain-free sourdough bread, people.

Beautiful grain-free sourdough bread.

Of course, if you just can’t wait until October of 2015 to make this sourdough bread, we have a couple of rewards for you on the Kickstarter that will help.

For a $1000 pledge on our Kickstarter to bring the Gluten-Free Girl flour blends to market, we are offering a baking class at our kitchen studio on Vashon Island. Here’s the important point. We can have up to 10 people per baking class. If you can gather 9 people who want to pay only $100 each for a three-hour baking class, you can come meet us here and bake bread with us. (And break bread. We’ll be feeding you in that class too.)

Plus, you’ll leave with a container of active gluten-free sourdough starter, so you can start baking sourdough bread at home.

Come to Vashon with your closest friends and family and learn to bake grain-free sourdough bread.

And if you don’t live anywhere near Vashon? No worries. We’re also offering a virtual baking class for those who pledge $1000. Gather 9 friends, each of you pitch in $100 and we’ll do a Google+ hangout with you, baking and talking. We’ll break bread virtually.

Seriously, you want this bread.

And we need your help to make these dreams come true. Please pledge to the Kickstarter today.

 

Tomorrow, we’ll tell you more about the grain-free blend and how we developed it. If you’re looking for a nutrient-dense gluten-free flour blend without rice, corn, potato, or any gums or additives, this will be the grain-free flour blend for you.
