Meet the Founder

Chef Roberto Giammellucca

Thanksย 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.ย 

Welcome to The Sourdough Science Academy,ย 

your Sourdough Journey has just started.


Just a thought...

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

๐Ÿฅ–ย learn how to make your own bread ,ย 

๐Ÿฅฆ learn how to grow you own veggies and trying to be self sufficient as much as possible

With theย 

โŒfood shortages we see nowadays,ย 


โŒrates andย 

โŒinflation going up,ย 

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

I am so blessed ๐Ÿ˜‡ to be able to contribute to help people with my knowledge and skills.

This is my main focus with my Academyโ€ฆ 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?

Had a great time, Roberto was an excellent teacher. Easy to understand and super interesting and informative. The venue was nice and open. Donโ€™t forget your pen and paper. Lots of extra tips to record and good online support going forward on my sourdough journey. Pics of my first two loaves baked at home. Absolutely beautiful!

Great way to spend a Saturday afternoon learning to make sourdough bread. Roberto teaches the authentic process. His loaves made yesterday were amazing. Lovely group of like minded people attending with a love of everything sourdough. Lots of detail and information given to make the perfect bread 😎

Nov 19, 2023

Loved learning how to make sourdough bread with Chef Roberto yesterday. My first loaf has turned out great! Perfect flavour and texture, so Iโ€™m happy and motivated to keep it up. I look forward to getting into a weekly routine of bread making for my family and enjoying the fruits of my labour. I recommend this course to anyone who is committed to producing their own quality sourdough bread.

I did the sourdough bread course and Roberto taught us everything we needed to bake great loaves (inc. ingredients, techniques). Casual atmosphere, delicious fresh bread and drinks were served. It made for a lovely afternoon.

โœจ An Unforgettable Weekend at the Secret Language of Food Symposium 2023 in Brisbane โœจ

Last weekend in Brisbane, I had the honour of joining forces with leading scientists and health practitioners at the much-acclaimed Secret Language of Food Symposium 2023. ๐ŸŒฟ

๐Ÿ™Œ A huge thanks to @cell_logic  Cell-Logic for inviting me to speak about the wonders of sourdough and its health benefits - a topic so dear to my heart ๐Ÿ’–.

The symposium centered around a powerful message:

๐Ÿฅ– Food is our first medicine. ๐Ÿฅ–๐Ÿ’Š

Sharing the stage with luminaries like Dr. Houghton, who challenged the fear of carbs with enlightening research on grains, was inspiring. ๐ŸŒพ

Alongside the captivating @drjoannamcmillan  Dr. Joanna McMillan, TV host and PhD Nutrition Scientist, who brought the latest findings on healthy extra virgin olive oil to light, ๐Ÿซ’โœจ

We delved into the depths of gut health with @drbradleech  Dr. Brad Leech, explored the influence of epigenetics with @yaeljoffe Dr. Yael Joffe, and unpacked the myriad benefits of Mediterranean diets with @genomickitchen Amanda Archibald. ๐Ÿ…๐ŸŸ

Dr. Tim Ewer's integrative approach to cancer prevention, along with insights from @jennyblondel.naturopath  Jenny Blondel, Dr. Helen Fitton, Dr. Natessa Henville, and the esteemed Dr. David Montgomery and Anne Biklรฉ from the USA, painted a comprehensive picture of nutrition's impact on well-being. ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿงฌ

As I spoke about the wonders of sourdough, I felt the resonance of shared understanding - that what we eat weaves directly into the fabric of our health. ๐Ÿžโค๏ธ

Let's keep this conversation going. Let's continue to learn, to eat, and to heal with every bite. ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐ŸŒฑ

A huge thank you to all the attendees, my fellow speakers, and everyone involved in making this symposium a landmark event. ๐Ÿ™๐ŸŽค

Thank you @kiallapurefoods to shared the boots with me and to spread the importance of a certified Organic Flour
