This Sourdough Bread Course is suitable for anyone who likes to learn new skill - no previous experience is needed. The course is held in a domestic kitchen in a small group to allow you to practice making bread in similar surroundings that you might have at home. The smal groups are ideal for learning and ensuring that you get most out of your day. During the day you will learn how to make your own sourdough starter and use it to bake delicious bread with just natural yeast. You will also learn how to use your sourdough starter to prepare other breads and bakes.
The day will start with cup of tea or coffee and friendly chat about what to expect from the day. We then move to our kitchen, which is part of a lovingly refurbished Victorian house. Here you will learn how to mix basic bread dough and more importantly how to kneed it, so it rises well. By the end of the morning, your bread will be happily rising, whilst you enjoy a light lunch, tasting different types of bread made earlier by us.
We will show you not only how to bake your own sourdough bread, but also how to look after your sourdough starter, how to use your sourdough starter in everyday baking and how to fit sourdough bread baking into your busy life.
The day will finish in late afternoon and you will leave full of ideas and with a step by step tutorial on how to make sourdough bread at home, your own freshly baked sourdough breads and sourdough starter.
