    A companion volume to the bestselling The Sourdough School focusing on sweet - but not sticky sweet - recipes that are not only delicious but also gut-friendly

    The benefits of sourdough are well known - the slow fermentation process creates a healthier and lighter dough that is easier to digest - but until now they have been mainly linked to bread. If it rises, however, it can be made with sourdough, and in this ground-breaking new book, Vanessa Kimbell focuses on sweet sourdough bakes that not only nourish the gut but also improve your mood.

    Using a variety of flours, including chestnut, spelt, and einkorn, as well as blends you can make up yourself, the classic recipes and new ideas for flavor combinations cover everything from cakes, tarts, and biscuits, to donuts, brioche and pretzels, and rely on natural sweetness wherever possible.

    Recipes include Morello Cherry Shortbread, Chocolate, Tangerine & Pistachio Cakes, Carrot & Walnut Cake, Doughnuts and Mille-feuille as well as vinegars, compotes, cultured creams, butters, and ghee. There is even Chocolate, Almond & Hazelnut Spread and Sourdough Vanilla Ice Cream.

    Vanessa also explains how sourdough helps to maintain the health and diversity of your gut microbiome. From understanding the benefits of having diversity in your diet to the amazing work of enzymes, this book is about understanding the connection between our food, gut microbiome and the potential impact on our mental health. New studies are unveiling links between the microorganisms in our gut and our mood and behavior, and Vanessa is at the forefront of this research.
