The scent of bread is the fragrance of all fragrances; it is the primal fragrance of our earthly life, the fragrance of harmony, of peace and of home. - Jaroslav Seiffert, 1984 Nobel Laureate in Literature
Oh so well said! Learn to bake bread at home using a sourdough starter and bring that fragrance home. It is fun, easy, satisfying, and incredibly delicious. In this workshop we will discuss the basics of sourdough fermentation- how to maintain a starter, mix loaves, shape loaves, then bake proofed bread in both dutch oven in a convection oven (like you will at home) as well as in our Rofco B40 Belgian bread oven (the one we use for production). In this 5 hour class you will have your hands in every step of the sourdough process, which normally is anywhere from 12-36 hours. You'll leave with bread recipes, starter recipes, starter, 2 proofing baskets holding loaves to bake at home, and your freshly baked bread.
Space is limited to 6 participants in a workshop.
