Come and get the full experience of how to bake sourdough bread in a small group. This course allows you to mix your own dough from start to finish, as well as learn how to troubleshoot and take care of your starter. We cover a lot in this time-it will set you up to bake a loaf at home with success.

There will lots of time to explore ideas and discuss questions and misunderstandings as they come up, as well as extra shaping practice & touching on adding more wholegrain flour to your bread.

Bread baking is a journey and hiccups are normal, however with a strong foundation you will know how to assess what went wrong and move forward! Beginners are welcome and amateur bakers will also get something out of this experience. Weโ€™ll also be enjoying a homemade seasonal lunch during the workshop!

What you will learn:

  • the workings of sourdough bread baking, from mixing, shaping to baking
  • How to bake your bread at HOME
  • How to take care of your starter
  • About different flours & grains
  • How to bake a classic sourdough as well as how modify it with extra ingredients (seeds, roasted garlic, cheese etc), and how to gradually add in whole wheat flour.

Go home with:

  • A baked loaf to take home
  • A loaf to bake at home
  • A healthy bubbly white sourdough starter
  • Your very own Sourdough bread baking ebook with recipe, method and lots of information, sourdough starter maintenance, the full method, resources & recipes
  • New knowledge and excitement about baking bread!

Lunch and refreshments provided.

FAQs

Do I have to know how to bake bread before I take a course?

No! You can be a complete and utter beginner! I teach you everything you need to know and you will go home knowing how to bake sourdough bread no matter your experience.

I have tried baking sourdough bread before with no luck…will this course help?

Yes! I have had multiple students take my course who have tried to bake sourdough bread before-either on their own with a cookbook or from the internet. They have gone on after taking my course to bake sourdough bread with much more success!

I haven’t been able to keep a sourdough starter alive or thriving before. Will this course help me do so?

Yes. I can give you a lot of information and knowledge to help you troubleshoot taking care of your sourdough starter. We spend a fair amount of time on this in both courses because it is the foundation of sourdough baking!

I want to learn how to bake sourdough bread with wholegrain flours? Do you cover this?

We talk about it in our workshops but this isn’t the main focus. If I ever develop a wholegrain workshop it will be on here and my social media outlets for you to find out about!
