I am so excited to add this amazing recipe for no knead einkorn sourdough bread to the catalog of Real Food creations on this blog! This particular recipe comes from Carla Bartolucci, one of the world’s foremost experts in the cultivation and traditional preparation of einkorn, the only nonhybridized form of wheat left on Planet Earth, and for many (non-genetically) gluten intolerant people, the only wheat they can eat and enjoy without symptoms.
Carla’s new book Einkorn: Recipes for Nature’s Original Wheat is a treasure trove for anyone who values ancient culinary traditions using ingredients such as einkorn that have safely nourished and delighted humanity for millenia. I am thrilled to be traveling to Italy very soon to meet Carla in person to learn from her during a week long culinary getaway which focuses exclusively on the wonders of einkorn.
For those of you who are new to bread baking and sourdough in particular, this is a recipe you should try first because it requires no kneading or shaping of the dough. Despite the little effort required, the resulting loaf looks like an artisan produced it!
