Your sourdough is unique to you. Every loaf is a story of your life, your past 24 hours, 48 hours, week, or however long your starter has been alive for!

Sourdough is what all breads used to be before baker’s yeast was invented. It’s the natural fermentation of flour and water that makes the bread rise. Working with the wild yeasts that live in the world all around us, we play our part to craft our bread. We pay attention and look after the dough, and the rest just happens naturally. That’s the beauty of sourdough.

For this course I would recommend that you have a little experience of making your own bread at home.


In this workshop we'll cover:

Why how you think about your sourdough is far more important than a recipe

How to make your own sourdough starter from scratch, and my low maintenance method of looking after it

How to fit sourdough bread making into your schedule, and developing your own schedule to take home

A variety of sourdough loaves and breads made using a range of techniques including a country style loaf and a rye bread

The difference between baking bread straight from the starter or making a levain first, and which method will work better for you.
