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?

What a great way to spend a Saturday! I’ve tried before on my own but now I have so much better understanding of the processes, I can’t wait to make bread each week

What a fantastic and fun class! Roberto explained the process in detail and made it very easy to understand. Went home with extra dough and a little recipe/instruction card for future reference. Highly recommend this class for anyone interested in baking a delicious, nutritous pizza

Roberto’s classes are always fun and very informative. I’ve done the Sourdough Pizza and now the bread classes and would recommend it to anyone one.

I have always wanted to make sourdough bread and Roberto’s workshop was really informative. Roberto went into the science about the flour, the baking, the whole technique about perfecting perfect bread. The class was fun and his bruschetta on freshly baked bread was outstanding. If you have ever wanted to master the art of sourdough please take this workshop. We took two loaves of bread home that we mastered and baked the next day and the loaves turned out beautifully.

Really enjoyed the course. Very informative and inclusive. No prior knowledge needed although those with knowledge and experience would also find very beneficial. Thanks Roberto

Hand-Kneaded vs. Mixer-Kneaded: Can You Tell the Difference?

I’ve put this to the test by making two loaves of sourdough bread using the exact same recipe, starter, temperature, and fermentation time. The only difference? One was kneaded by hand, and the other with a KitchenAid mixer.

Swipe through the photos to see the results side-by-side! 🍞🔄

Whether you prefer the tactile feel of hand-kneading or the convenience of a mixer, you can achieve the same delicious results. It’s all about using the right techniques for each method. 👩‍🍳👨‍🍳

Hand-Kneading Tips:

	1.	Use a gentle folding technique to develop gluten.
	2.	Give the dough enough rest between folds.
	3.	Feel the dough to understand when it’s ready.

Mixer-Kneading Tips:

	1.	Use the dough hook attachment.
	2.	Keep an eye on the dough to avoid over-mixing.
	3.	Stop mixing when the dough is smooth and elastic.

No mixer? No problem! Your hands are the best tool you have. Let’s embrace the art of baking together, no matter the method. 💪✨

You can do it! Give it a try and share your results with us. Happy Baking! 🍞❤️
