Gluten Free Sourdough Bread

2 Session Workshop

Teacher Camila Loew

Gluten free sourdough bread is within the reach of every home baker. Frustrated by the highly refined ingredients in many commercially made gluten free (GF) breads, Chef Camila embarked on a quest to bake her own. She has tweaked the process to her satisfaction and is excited to share her knowledge as you make bread together in this interactive online class.
Class materials:
  • GF sourdough starter, available for pick up at The Civic Kitchen (no additional charge).
  • Optional ingredient kit with all ingredients needed for class, available for pick up at The Civic Kitchen (additional charge; see below.)
  • Short videos from chef Camila, showing you how to feed your starter the day before class, and how to finish baking after our Class 1 session concludes.
Class schedule:
  • The night before class, feed your starter as demonstrated in Camila’s video.
  • In Class 1, Camilla will teach you the basics of GF sourdough bread making, complete with troubleshooting tips. She will discuss the creation and maintenance of your own starter and guide you in making a simple cracker recipe to use up excess starter. She will lead you in measuring and mixing your dough, which will be left to rise.
  • After Class 1 concludes and your dough has risen, you’ll bake your loaf at home. Don’t worry! We’ll provide a video from Camila showing you exactly how to finish everything off.
  • Finally, participants will reconvene the following morning for Class 2, a one hour Q&A (and bread tasting & show-off!) session.
Videos and instructions for picking up starter and/or ingredient kits will be emailed after you register. If you wish to make your own starter, we’ll provide instructions in advance upon your request (you should begin at least 2 weeks before class).

Camila and her family lived in Barcelona for 15 years, where she fell in love with the Mediterranean way of cooking and eating. They moved to Berkeley in 2013, where she became known throughout the Bay Area for her authentic paellas, prepared on site at many parties, and for teaching Spanish and Mediterranean cuisines.
