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.
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.
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.
