Next workshop – 13th JANUARY 2024
VENUE: BOURNE END BUCKS
Sourdough can be a difficult thing to master, but with Louise’s help you’ll gain the skills and confidence to bake tasty sourdough loaves.
The morning will commence with coffee/tea and a selection of freshly baked Swedish buns. Louise will guide you through on choosing the best ingredients to working and shaping the dough, to get the best results. This workshop is limited to 5 participants, allowing Louise to direct as much attention as required to each person.
A perfect gift for a budding sourdough baker!

“I can’t think of a better way to spend a morning than in Louise’s stunning kitchen learning the secrets of sourdough. The small group means you can get really hands on and make your own loaves which were absolutely delicious. Louise holds your hand as she guides you through the process so you come away with the confidence to do it by yourself. Highly recommend.”
“Quite simply a brilliant course with Louise in her fabulous kitchen in her fabulous home. Instructional, step-by-step techniques, practically demonstrated and explained, in a gentle, reassuring manner. I can’t, hand on heart, say that I have totally overcome my fear of my sourdough starter, but I HAVE managed to keep it alive and healthy so far and have also managed to produce a delicious Danish Rye Loaf once every week since attending the course (my fourth in the oven now!). When I enrolled onto the course, I knew that at the very least, I would come away with some (albeit rather expensive) delicious bakes and I am thrilled to say that as well as my bakes I have also come away with the knowledge and confidence to bake my own bread. Thank you Louise for a great experience and for sharing your incredible knowledge so freely and generously, I eagerly await news of future workshops and look forward to attending my second (and more) with you! Thank you“
“I simply wanted to drop you a note of thanks for the Sourdough Workshop last Saturday. The interaction with the others in our small group was great … I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed it and of course, the pleasure of eating the wonderful bread we produced“
“Thank you for a fabulous morning. I can’t believe how much you packed in. A lovely welcome and start to the day with a delicious bun and coffee. I thoroughly enjoyed learning the art and science of sourdough making. I thought it was very clever to start with the end of the process – scoring and baking and then learning all the steps that lead up to making delicious sourdough. There was a lot of excitement when I arrived home with a bag of fabulous baked goods. The session was relaxed, fun and kept us all active”
