Savannah's Sourdough Kitchen!
The cozy hub for learning all about baking with sourdough
When's the last time you slathered butter on a piece of homemade bread, fresh and hot from the oven? Or started off your day with sourdough cinnamon rolls? Or made a snack tray with herb & parm crackers?
Sourdough is a huge part of the Kilpatrick family lifestyle. We're a busy family (with both a farm + online business to run). Like many of you, we wanted to save money in the kitchen and eat healthier, but struggled with the time commitment and complexity of sourdough.
That's why I've spent the past six years developing a SIMPLE baking method that meshes with our busy lifestyle and produces CONSISTENT, mouth-melting results.
Whether you want to learn how to bake a fluffy loaf every once in a while, make desserts that will bring your neighbors running, or quit buying baked items from the store entirely, you're in the right place to become a sourdough master!

Bringing back breadmaking...
“Connecting with people, and giving them tools to go forward and make changes in their homes really excites me. The lost domestic arts are making a huge comeback, and for good reason!
In a world that’s more and more virtual, we need something real to sink our hands in. We need work, and we need the work to matter.
This is one of the reasons that I’m doing a Sourdough Workshop. It’s not just teaching you to make sourdough in a way that’s been so simple to add to my very full life, but it’s also showing you how you could do this in your own life/farm too!”
