Why Gluten-Free Sourdough?
June 8, 1:00pm
Sadie Scheffer, baker and owner of Bread SRSLY, dives into the history of breadmaking, breaks down the science of wild yeast, and shares why your belly will love gluten-free sourdough bread. Sadie is an artist, an MIT dropout, and an accidental bread baker. She founded Bread SRSLY in 2011 when a quest to impress her gluten-intolerant crush turned into a seriously addictive baking hobby. The proud parent of a thriving gluten-free sourdough starter, Sadie launched her business on an impulse, and learned how to run it between the baking and the bike-delivery runs. She now leads a team of 20 employees from Bread SRSLY’s Berkeley facility. You can find Bread SRSLY loaves in grocery store fridges throughout California, and in the home kitchens of gluten-free eaters nationwide.
