Sharon Roberts, sourdough and fermentation expert, author and chef with Carmen Lyndley, Health and Lifestyle Consultant founder of The Health Habit are co-hosting this extraordinary event, comprising 3 outstanding back-to-back events in 1 day.  There are 4 dates to choose from. Dates are all Saturdays.  Choose from 25 April, 27 June, 8 August, 10 October.

‘Unlocking the Secrets of Sourdough’ The first event is an exciting and revealing talk packed with astonishing information.  It also includes tastings.   Sharon will dispel sourdough myths and unlock the science in sourdough.   You’ll discover why the newest, hippest way to make your own sourdough at home, turns out to be the oldest one known to man.  She’ll reveal what makes authentic sourdough bread unique and show you how to identify an authentic loaf of sourdough bread.  You’ll learn how bread has been raised since Egyptian times and the myths and magic surrounding it.

‘Understanding Your Gut Health’ Carmen will give you an insight into the secret workings of your gut, now described as our second brain. You’ll discover its power over your weight, immune system and cognitive health and learn how sourdough and other fermented foods contribute to optimum health and well being.

‘Discover Real Sourdough & Compare it with ‘Sourfaux’  You will also taste Sharon’s stunning, homemade sourdough bread and compare it with supermarket ‘sourfaux’.  You’ll discover what real sourdough bread is and how supermarkets are getting away with charging a premium for bread that contains spurious and undisclosed ingredients and labelled ‘sourdough’.   Sharon will also reveal lesser known facts about supermarket sourdough, such as why supermarkets use flour that is sprayed with glyphosate (weed killer).  This revelation and more, will astonish you!     You’ll also discover why making your own sourdough bread connects you to real food and is a delicious and healthy option.   There is a Q&A at the end of this session.

There’s a short break for refreshments which include a taste of Sharon’s delicious, homemade sourdough bread accompanied by her homemade probiotic spread and other outstanding, gut friendly tasters.

And you’ll stay for the 2nd event.

‘Sourdough Pizza & Gut Health Extravaganza’  This 2nd event includes a fascinating sourdough pizza demonstration by Sharon. If you fancy, you’re welcome to join in with some mindful kneading.  Sharon will make sensational, authentic sourdough pizzas, step by step using one of her powerful, high performance starters.   Pizzas are made with fabulous Italian flour used by pizza maestros.

‘Mindful Kneading’   Sharon’s outstanding sourdough pizza is based on the recipe by Roman pizza maestro, Gabrielle Bonci.    American Vogue describe him as, ‘The Michaelangelo of Pizza’.    As far as Sharon knows, she is the only person in the UK demonstrating his sensational pizza.

This is extraordinary pizza dough to knead!  It’s a high hydration dough and you’ll learn how to handle and knead it.    You’ll  discover what makes this Italian flour unique.  There is only 1 UK importer for this very special flour and you’ll discover who it is.    You can give Sharon a hand preparing and creating the gut friendly pizza toppings and putting it all together.  It’s fun, incredibly informative and you’ll be able to re-create this outstanding pizza at home.

You have the option to participate, or simply sit, watch and relax.  You can decide on the day.

‘Discover More about Your Gut Health’ The 2nd event also includes a very special pre-lunch presentation from Carmen, ‘How you eat is every bit as important as what you eat’.    You’ll discover why chewing your food thoroughly and eating your meals more slowly can help promote full digestion and absorption of nutrients.  You’ll also discover how this can help you reduce digestive discomfort and maintain a healthy gut.

Whilst the pizzas are baking in Sharon’s amazing portable oven, Carmen will introduce you to mindful, (seated) eating exercises.  These exercises are powerful and will help to optimise your gut health.

Lunch will be Sharon’s superb, authentic sourdough pizza.  The pizza is topped with a selection of gut friendly, and delicious toppings.   Toppings are suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

This will be a sensational and relaxed lunch!

Fabulous Ferments & Gut Health The 3rd event is after lunch.  Discover the fabulous world of fermented vegetables. An old fashioned way of pickling, but much easier and far more delicious.   You’ll discover what it is, why we should eat more fermented foods beyond sourdough bread (which is, afterall fermented dough) and what foods can be successfully fermented.

Sharon will demonstrate just how easy it is to ferment your favourite veg into something exceptional.

Whilst Carmen reveals why fermented foods are so beneficial for our gut health.

If you fancy giving Sharon a hand and joining in with preparing the fabulous ferments, you can do so at any time.  Or, just sit, watch and listen.

You’ll also taste one of Sharon’s extraordinary veggie ferments.

Sharon and Carmen’s expertise is available throughout this exceptional day.
