Up and coming Sourdough and other workshops will be posted here.
Have you ever fancied baking a sourdough loaf? Have you been intimidated by a lengthy recipes online or in a book? I don’t know about you but I absorb and retain information far more easily if it’s been demonstrated to me, which leads me onto my Sourdough Workshop. In May last year I held my first class at Bourne End Academy, eight enthusiastic budding bakers signed up to learn the fundamentals of sourdough bread making. If you are new to sourdough bread then this is the perfect workshop for you.
I demonstrated how to make a rye starter and maintaining it, I showed the students how to recognise how it should smell and know when it is ready to bake with. I also talked them through how sourdough behaves and we then made a really fabulous loaf of bread.
We also made Sourdough Pizza!
