Artisan Bread Making for Fun

Introduction to Sourdough Course

Introduction to Sourdough Course - Half Day

(suitable for complete novices and the more experienced home baker)

10.30 - 13.30 or afternoon by arrangement.




This half day, hands on workshop, will cover the fundamentals of sourdough bread making and show you what makes wild yeast baking so special.

What is a starter? How do you manage it? How can I fit it in around a busy life? Why is sourdough better for me and how it helps with digestibility?

We will cover all this and more………………


We will make a malted sourdough with dough I have prepared in advance and you will create a classic organic white and wholemeal ‘no knead’ sourdough using my mature starter. I will take you through ingredients, processes and shaping techniques. You’ll have all the recipes, a pot of my starter, a delicious freshly baked sourdough and one that you have made yourself to take away and bake at home. (Bring your own tupperware container or we can supply a bread banneton (proving basket) at cost, £10 which you will be able to use going forward.
