Introduction to Sourdough Bread Baking class

Join me for a fun morning learning how to bake sourdough bread at home. No previous baking experience necessary.

 We will be discussing all aspects of baking using wild yeast – from maintaining your starter culture to working with different flours and hydrations, looking at the best ways to bake your breads using a domestic oven.

You will make a dough from scratch to take home, learn how to pre-shape and shape a loaf and bake your own sourdough. You will learn how to use inclusions to make different loaves using the same ‘mother dough’. 

The workshop takes place at our workshop in Manchester, Urmston (M41). We will have plenty of time for questions and answers whilst we tend to our doughs. 

The workshop fee includes all ingredients, tea/coffee and pastries on arrival, a bread proofing basket for you to take home and a baked loaf.

I will provide comprehensive notes after the class and you will go home with all your bread from the day and a little bit of my starter.
