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
Learn the skills to bake bread at home using a sourdough starter and bake delicious and nutritious bread at home. In this workshop we will discuss the basics of sourdough fermentation- how to maintain a starter, mix dough, shape dough, then bake proofed loaves. In this 3 hour class, we make sure you will have your hands in every step of the sourdough process, which normally is anywhere from 12-36 hours, so you know what to look for in each step. You'll leave with confidence to continue baking at home, bread and other sourdough recipes, sourdough starter, 2 proofing baskets holding loaves to bake at home, and your freshly baked bread, and freshly milled flour for your next bake.
Space is limited to 8 participants in a workshop.
(The class is Saturday from 4-7, to not take away too much from your Saturday chores and family plans… just sneak out at the end of the day for some baking fun, and bring home warm loaves for dinner. )
