My name is Ilgin. I have had a love for cooking for as long as I can remember.

I was born and raised in Turkey, in a very traditional Mediterranean household, which revolved around wholesome, natural, home-cooked food.

My culinary passion led me to explore the world of sourdough baking so in January 2019 I set up 'Just Sourdough by Ilgin' in order to share my passion and enthusiasm and spread the sourdough love.

In June 2021, I received the Bronze Award in the Enriched Sourdough category of the Scottish Bread Championships at the Royal Highland Show.

I am delighted and honoured to have been appointed as a Real Bread Campaign Ambassador in July 2021.

I am also very honoured to have been asked to be a judge at the World Bread Awards 2022.

Come and join me at one of my bread making workshops in my home kitchen and start your own sourdough journey!

Attendees will be learning how to make wholesome, organic sourdough bread in my home kitchen. We will also have a lunch break and eat freshly baked sourdough.

    Such an enjoyable and enlightening workshop. Ilgin is a great host as well as a brilliant instructor. I learnt so much, met some lovely people and took home the most delicious bread. I only hope I can replicate it in my own kitchen!

    Ilgin was an excellent teacher. Her knowledge of sourdough baking and the science behind the process of bread making was exceptional. Clear precise instructions at every stage made it a very enjoyable and fun workshop. I would highly recommend this course. Excellent value for money.

    A perfect and seamless experience run by a true expert in the art of sourdough. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ilgin to anyone. Ilgin is a lovely person and fantastic host. We learnt a lot as a group. The challenge is now on to see if we can keep making beautiful loaves as lovely as the ones we made in the photos.

    I cannot rate this course highly enough – I attended just over a week ago and am already on my 3rd home baked loaf and keeping my starter nice and healthy in the meantime. Ilgin explains everything so well and with such passion – I never realised just how much there is to know about Sourdough baking. Ilgin is also very contactable if you have any questions or follow ups after the event. The family all approve of my new skills. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!
