How to Make Sourdough Bread

October 16 @ 10:30 am - 3:00 pm


Learn to make sourdough, it is easy to do. And you don’t need a perfect schedule to make one or two.

You don’t need to fit in with it, it can fit in with you. Sure it won’t always be perfect but it will always taste good.

I will teach you to make your own leaven and I’ll give you some too.

You will learn how to care for it, don’t worry it’s an easy thing to do.

We will look at free form loaves and tin loaves and flours and kneading techniques.

Chats about bulk fermentation, proofing and scoring.

Humidity and how to use your fridge and oven… to slow things down…to speed things up.

For home bakers who want to produce theatre, flavour and fragrance in the kitchen.

For big-hearted people who want to engage in savoury performances, humble or grand. A backdrop for nurturing and chatting and caring for each other.

Slices of warm bread, butter, melting, at night in the dark of winter, in the morning in the light of summer.

We will make lunch by preparing flatbreads and baking these too. We will cook together three vegetarian dishes to fill our flatbreads. Coffee, tea and cake too.

Baking will take place in our wood-fired oven and you will take home two loaves of bread: one with rye, wholemeal and white flour. The other a rich chocolate bread!

Join me if you can…arrivederci! Mara
