Sourdough Basics Baking Class

Learn how to make sourdough bread in Collingwood



1.5 hours Class size 12 to 40     label $120

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 that 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. - 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.


What you'll get
  • Instruction manual for future bakes - A banneton basket to take home - A loaf of bread to bake at home the following day

What to bring
  • An apron - Digital scales - Measuring cup

Suitable for

This class is perfect for beginners - no prior experience is needed.

This class is great for a team building activity, birthday, hens party or bucks party.

Whilst baking "bread" for several years, I had no real concept of "sour dough" apart from buying it! The class was informative, interesting and Jess provided a great incite to the ups and downs of baking sourdough. My daughter Emily and I have made our "first loaf" and whilst it was not perfect, it was delicious and having our new found friend (starter Graham - named after my father who is also in his 90s) we will be certainly making more and trying to perfect this ancient art!

I loved this workshop! It was great and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in sourdough bread.
Jess, our teacher, was very ver friendly, Knowledgeable, clear and structured. The venue was very noce and I loved the fact that we were given a sourdough starter & a bread basket. It was excellent value for money and I learnt sooo much through the workshop. I’d definitely & happily attend another workshop with the same teacher.

Anita Lentini Aug 2022


I really enjoyed this class. It’s my first bread baking class and I was impressed of how thorough and patient the teacher was, good amount of supplies to use and take home plus plenty of time for questions.

I can highly recommend this course for everyone who wants to learn how to bake sourdough.
The teacher is really friendly, has very good knowledge and makes the course fun.
I thought we would experiment with rye flour but I do understand know why this isn't right for beginners. My goal is to bake awesome rye sourdough and the course gave me the tips and tricks to make it happen. Thank you!

Venue was good, technology failed which was nothing to reflect on the teacher. It did however make it harder to watch techniques.

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!
