The Sourdough School: Sweet Baking: Nourishing the gut & the mind Hardcover published 3 Sept. 2020

The Sourdough School: Sweet Baking: Nourishing the gut & the mind Hardcover – 3 Sept. 2020 by Vanessa Kimbell

Healthy food, the key to a positive life and at its base should be good bread. Many benefits accrue to sourdough bread. The process of preparing sourdough involves a slow fermentation process. This in turn creates a healthier and lighter dough that is easier to digest. Personally I find this to be the case.

So this process can be applied to a range of breads, tarts, biscuits and others. They can all be made with sourdough. In Vanessa Kimbell’s new book you will find many recipes that will provide for for nourishing the gut but will also improve your mood.

In Vanessa’s book, you will use a variety of flours, including chestnut, spelt and einkorn, as well as blends you can make up. There is a wide variety of options including cakes, tarts and biscuits, to doughnuts, brioche and pretzels.

It is impossible to read this book without wanting to scuttle off into the kitchen.’ Nigella Lawson

Do you want to bake:

Morello Cherry Shortbread,

Chocolate, Tangerine & Pistachio Cakes,

Carrot & Walnut Cake, Doughnuts

Mille-feuille

Chocolate, Almond & Hazelnut Spread

Sourdough Vanilla Ice Cream?

The basis for the health benefits based upon gut microbiome considerations, are expained by Vanessa when she considers the health benefits of having diversity in your diet to the amazing work of enzymes.

A fundamental connection between our food, gut microbiome and the potential impact on our mental health. New studies are unveiling links between the microorganisms in our gut and our mood and behaviour, and Vanessa is at the forefront of this research.

‘Britain’s queen of sourdough.’ – Telegraph

‘Vanessa Kimbell wants to change the bread we eat, one loaf at a time. She’s the real deal: a total inspiration.’ – Diana Henry

Just five years ago if someone said to you that they were writing a book about sourdough bread and mental health you would have thought they needed psychiatric help. Today nobody is laughing as the latest science tells us that microbes are the key link between food and the health of our mind and bodies.’ – Tim Spector, author of The Diet Myth

Who is Nigel Slater?

Nigel Slater is one of our best-loved food writers, and has written his second volume of the Kitchen Diaries – a beautiful and inspiring companion volume to his best selling Kitchen Diaries. His articles feature in the Observer Food Monthly and the Guardian. See Nigel Slater’s recipes in the Guardian.

The Kitchen Diaries II “For years now I have kept notebooks, with scribbled shopping lists and early drafts of recipes in them. These notes form the basis of this second volume of The Kitchen Diaries. More than a diary, this is a collection of small kitchen celebrations, be it a casual, beer-fuelled supper of warm flatbreads with pieces of grilled lamb scattered with toasted pine kernels and blood-red pomegranate seeds or a quiet moment contemplating a bowl of soup and a loaf of bread.”

About : A Kitchen Chronicle. My latest book and the second volume of The Kitchen Diaries.

A collection of notes, essays, jottings and recipes compiled over the last three or four years. As you might expect from the title, this is a very personal book, written and photographed in my own kitchen. Not a television tie-in, but many of the recipes are those from the BBC1 series Simple Suppers and Simple Cooking.
