Meet the Founder

Chef Roberto Giammellucca

Thanks for visiting The Sourdough Science Academy.


This is an idea born from the desire to spread awareness of Sourdough and its health benefits.

When I first started making my own Sourdough Starter it was a success after few trials and this is because I had the knowledge and understanding of wheat flour and its enzymatic composition and I have studied the bacteria’s metabolic reactions .

I am a Qualified Italian Pizzaiolo, Chef and Baker, I have been taught to study the Science behind the kneading process of Pizza, Bread and any other kinds of doughs.

I have been experimenting for many years and I am now ready and keen to share the knowledge and my founding with you all.

I will show you how to bake bread, pizza and any other sourdough related goods with the use of natural and organic ingredients and Ancient Grains.

I also love to socialise and share my food with everyone that is why I also offer Pizza Catering for Parties, Birthdays, Functions and Private events. 

Welcome to The Sourdough Science Academy, 

your Sourdough Journey has just started.


Just a thought...

I believe that there has never been better time then NOW for 

🥖 learn how to make your own bread , 

🥦 learn how to grow you own veggies and trying to be self sufficient as much as possible

With the 

❌food shortages we see nowadays, 


❌rates and 

❌inflation going up, 

✅ SAVING Money comes as priority in our daily life and it is a vital skills to protect ourselves.

I am so blessed 😇 to be able to contribute to help people with my knowledge and skills.

This is my main focus with my Academy… helping people having bread on their table at low cost with the maximum health benefits and without the use of expensive equipment.

Are you ready to start baking your own delicious Sourdough Bread?

Roberto was a great teacher, approachable and I felt confident to give sourdough bread a go after the workshop. Knowing I can access him and the community when I need it is also very reassuring

The sourdough class was very enjoyable and provided the information and motivation to begin my sourdough journey. After mixing, stretching and folding the dough, I took it home and placed it in the refrigerator for 20 hours then cooked my first sourdoughs. They were amazing! Thankyou Roberto for sharing your knowledge and encouragement.

The workshop yesterday was wonderful, so informative, I learned so much from Roberto, and he explained things in such a way that it made everything so easy. I intend to do the sourdough bread workshop next. This is the pizza that I made.

Had a great time on the Sourdough Pizza course with Roberto today. Was hands on all through the morning from making the dough, then making the pizza and then eating our pizzas. Looking foward to making the pizzas from the dough we made today tomorrow.

WOW. Roberto was the best. Our group had a mix of beginners and experienced ones. He catered to all of us. I started baking sourdough 4 years ago and I still learnt so much. Great resources are available after the class too for all the questions you know you will have. He crammed so much into the class. Seeing it cook, then making our own, there are 20 minute gaps between steps so you learn in bite size pieces. Then you get to eat it with wine and truffle oil AND take home your 2 loaves ready to bake the next day. It was such a fun class. I strongly recommend for anyone interested in sourdough for any reason and at any skill level.

Yesterday was a truly special day as I had the pleasure of hosting a private sourdough bread class at Paige’s home for her and her beautiful family. It was an experience filled with laughter, learning, and, most importantly, the joy of baking together. 🏡❤️

Their three wonderful daughters were hands-on, from mixing to shaping, witnessing the magic of sourdough come to life. The highlight? The moment we all sat down to savor the freshly baked organic sourdough bread, with a touch of butter melting into its warm, airy crumb. Pure bliss! 😍🥖

It’s moments like these that remind us of the simple pleasures in life and the beauty of creating something from scratch with love and organic ingredients. 🌿

At The Sourdough Science Academy, we believe in spreading not just the knowledge of baking but the experience of joy it brings to families and friends. 

Whether you’re looking to solve gluten intolerance issues with our specially fermented sourdough or just wanting to create memories, we’re here for you. 🌟

Thank you, Paige and family, for inviting me into your home and for the wonderful memories. Let’s continue to spread the love, one sourdough loaf at a time. 💛
