Sourdough Basics – Sunday 17 September 10am – 3pm

Artisan baked bread

Artisan Baked Bread

To celebrate the Real Bread Campaign’s annual Sourdough September, we bring you all things sourdough. On this workshop, we aim to introduce you to using sourdough (natural leaven) in breadmaking.

Begin your own starter, refresh and take away some of ours, create a sourdough pizza for lunch. Recipes, kneading, shaping and baking also covered in detail. You will take home recipes, dough and bread.

Due to the nature of sourdough bread, we will work at all the different stages but will not bake a loaf from start to finish as this is a lengthy process!

Cost: £75 (includes lunch) Book Online
