Vanessa Kimbell is a legend in sourdough, baking, fair trade, the gut microbiome and much, much more. During the course of the evening, Spencer Hyman will be chatting to Vanessa about her Italian mother, how she first began working in the village bakery in France as a child, why she fell in love with bread and has never looked back. In addition to being a sourdough (and indeed baking overall) expert in nutrition and digestibility of bread, she is also a regular Radio 4 Food Contributor on everything from vanilla, chocolate and tea.
We’ll also discuss her personal fascination with gut health and how that led her to develop teaching courses for baking bread at home that not only tastes amazing but also nourishes your gut microbiome.
