Learn the magic and maintenance of sourdough starters alongside an introductory lesson in the art of sourdough bread baking. Due to limited seating this is a register in advance event. $50
The class is from 9-11 and will begin with a brief discussion of techniques and maintenance for your sourdough starters with a demonstration on how to “feed” this living culture. Each participant will get HANDS-ON with a batch of dough, transforming it through a series of stretches and folds, eventually leading to what will become your own sourdough loaf. We will shape the loaves together in class, and you will bake them later that day (in your own home). Fresh sourdough starters will be provided in jars for each participant to TAKE HOME along with their shaped loaf.
Participants are asked to bring in a TEA TOWEL (no terry cloth) and a BOWL or COLANDER approximately 8 inches in diameter (does not need to be large) to transport their shaped dough home.
Alternatively, participants may purchase a small colander/tea towel set at the event, or online (I like these: https://www.amazon.com/Banneton-Proofing-Basket-Sourdough-Baking/) or you can purchase locally at Colliers or The Galley.
Limited seating. Must pre-register (to ensure enough dough is prepared).
Minimum age is 14 years unless individual has previous baking experience.
