Sourdough Bread Day

Class Summary

Class details

The Holy Grail of breads that artisans everywhere – both at home and on the high street – aspire to make well. This is Nature’s way of making bread, a long, slow fermentation of wild yeasts that exist naturally in the flour and results in a wonderful flavour and digestibility. An often seemingly complicated bread to make, Patrick will simplify it through becoming familiar with the process as you make German Pumpernickel Bread, a large pain au levin and begin your own sourdough starter to take home.

This hands-on class is the ideal follow on to our very popular “Use Your Loaf” class.
