‘Sourdough Extravaganza'

Unlocking the Secrets of Sourdough & Sourdough Pizza Extravaganza  2 jam-packed, extraordinary events, back-to-back.

Hosted every month in Wimborne by me, Sharon Roberts, sourdough expert, author & chef.

‘Unlocking the Secrets of Sourdough’ The first half is a talk with tasting. You will taste my stunning, homemade sourdough bread and compare it with supermarket sourdough. You’ll discover what real sourdough bread is and how supermarkets are getting away with charging a premium for questionable sourdough.

I will  also share with you the benefits of fermented foods (sourdough is, after all, fermented bread) what these foods are and can be.

I will touch on the pioneering research of Tim Spector, Professor of Genetic Epidemiology at King’s College and Hon Consultant Physician at Guy’s & St Thomas’ Hospital London.  He’s been leading the largest microbiome project in the UK since 2011.     I will share with you ways to optimise your gut health using a diverse range of extraordinary flours and where you can buy them.   As a result of all this knowledge, you will discover how you can make improvements to your gut health.  This in turn affects physical and mental health. You’ll discover how to do this immediately.  Plus, why making your own bread is an easy, healthy and delicious option.

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

And you’ll stay for the 2nd event:-


‘Sourdough Pizza Extravaganza’

 A demonstration, with participation (only if you fancy) and tasting.   This outstanding pizza is based on the recipe by pizza maestro, Gabrielle Bonci.    American Vogue describes him as, ‘The Michaelangelo of Pizza’.    As far as I know, I’m the only person in the UK demonstrating his sensational pizza.

Watch me make sensational, authentic sourdough pizzas, step by step.    Pizzas are made with fabulous Italian flour used by pizza maestros and one of my powerful,  high performance starters.   You will also learn how to work with a high hydration dough too.

If you fancy, you’re welcome to join in with some mindful kneading, giving me a hand preparing and creating the pizza toppings and putting it all together.

Pizzas are baked in my amazing portable oven.

Savour my delicious sourdough pizzas which you can reproduce at home.  There’s plenty of pizza to go round – so come with an appetite.

You will also discover which supermarkets are getting away with selling ‘sourdough pizzas’ that don’t contain sourdough and carry a premium price tag because they are labelled ‘sourdough’.
