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 fantastic teacher. He was able to simplify a complex process so I felt I could easily follow the steps at home. I had a lot of fun and laughs and got to taste his bruschetta as well as take my two loaves home to bake.

Chef Roberto's teaching style is both engaging and captivating. He ensures each student understands the material and even provides post-workshop support to answer any lingering questions or concerns. His infectious enthusiasm for sourdough is the secret ingredient that turns an already fantastic workshop into an unforgettable experience. What sets this academy apart, though, is the scientific perspective it brings to the art of sourdough making. It's not just about mixing ingredients and kneading the dough. It's an in-depth exploration of fermentation processes, the role of wild yeast, hydration levels, and the importance of temperature and time—all the integral elements that breathe life into a loaf of sourdough. In short, the Sourdough Science Academy offers a wonderful blend of theoretical knowledge, practical skills, and culinary artistry. It's not just a baking class—it's a holistic journey into the soul of sourdough bread. Whether you're a seasoned baker looking to refine your skills or a beginner seeking a solid foundation, this is the place to be.

Fantastic afternoon learning to make Pizza with Roberto his passion and enthusiasm for pizza and teaching are second to none. I have been to other classes before but Roberto’s is by far the best!

Roberto’s sourdough pizza class is absolutely fabulous! Not only do you get to make and eat amazing pizza, Roberto is a fabulous teacher and his passion for Italian cuisine and produce is felt throughout the whole class. From Italian music, to imported Italien produce - this class makes you feel like you are in Italy! Roberto made everyone feel good and by the end of the class we all felt as though we were all friends. 5 stars and I’ll be back for the sourdough bread class!

🍞 Two Years of The Sourdough Science Academy: 
A Journey From Scratch to Sourdough Success! 🍞

Hey everyone! 🌟

Today marks a special day for all of us at The Sourdough Science Academy. 

It's our 2nd anniversary, and what an incredible journey it has been! 🎉

The Beginning
Two years ago, I left my full-time job with a dream in my heart and flour in my hands. I started alone but now we're a team of 5, all passionate about the art and science of sourdough. I still remember my first class; I was nervous, teaching 7 students the basics of sourdough bread. 🍞

Where We Are Today
Fast forward to today, and every weekend we have classes with 10-15 enthusiastic learners, diving into not just sourdough bread but also sourdough pizza, pasta, and more! 🍕🍝 We've expanded to caterings, online courses, and even an online shop.

By The Numbers
🔹 Almost 70 workshops
🔹 Over 800 students taught live
🔹 Countless more online
🔹 Tons of sourdough bread and pizza produced!

A Big Thank You! 🙏🏻
I couldn't have done this without the incredible support from each and every one of you:
⭐️ To my amazing wife, thank you for being my rock. ❤️
⭐️ To my two little daughters, you are my inspiration every day. 🌸
⭐️ To all my students, your enthusiasm fuels my passion. 📚
⭐️ To my friends and colleagues, your support has been invaluable. 🤝
⭐️ To fellow businesses, thank you for the partnerships and collaborations. 🤗

As we look forward to another year, our mission remains the same: to spread the knowledge and joy of making sourdough, while also helping solve problems with gluten intolerance. 🌾

Here's to more learning, more growing, and tons more sourdough! 🥂

With immense gratitude,
Roberto Giammellucca and the Team at The Sourdough Science Academy

And guess what? He absolutely nailed it on his first try after the class! 🎯 

The look of happiness and the heartfelt thanks I received from him made my day! 🙏
