The class is designed as an introduction to sourdough baking techniques for beginners with little to no experience with naturally leavened bread. Our introductory course is taught through a combination of demonstrations and brief hands-on elements to provide a fundamental understanding of baking naturally leavened bread. The course is structured in order to build your confidence as you approach our advanced baking classes in the future.
Learn how to maintain a sourdough starter, mix, shape, score and bake a bread recipe. This course relies on demonstrations to teach basic principles. Students will, however, be able to use their senses (touch, smell, taste, sight) throughout the lesson.
You will leave the class with a jar of starter, a loaf of naturally leavened bread scored by you, 1lb. of freshly milled flour to feed your starter, a proofing basket, and a comprehensive guide on creating naturally leavened bread on your own.
