Rise to the challenge and prove yourself capable of creating your own tough-crusted and deliciously dense sourdough in this class for beginners. Sourdough, it seems, is older than recorded human history. It’s made through the process of fermentation, a natural leavening which produces the perfect breakfast staple. You’ll learn why sourdough is simply the best bread (spoiler: it’s chemical-free and encourages a healthy gut). Introduce yourself to a sourdough starter, explore its mechanics and proper care, and it’ll reward you with tangy and perfect loaves.

This comprehensive workshop covers ingredient selection, starter care, and the processes of sourdough fermentation and baking, with plenty of guidance and time for questions. Last but not yeast, you’ll take your fermenting dough home to bake in the morning. It’ll be a rye-ot.

*Please note this workshop is strictly limited to 10 tickets

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class

The teacher was really great. As there was quite a lot of waiting around for the dough to be ready, it’s a lot of work to keep everyone engaged... but she did it really well!

The sourdough basic workshop was a great workshop to start getting into making sourdough. The class was very well paced, informative and we left with our dough ready to bake the following morning. I would highly recommend this workshop if interested in fermentation and/or making sourdough
