Sourdough Series Classes – Beginner and Intermediate

Sunday 2nd and Sunday 16th July
£120.00 per person per class
Sourdough is one of the most ancient forms of bread making, and also the most satisfying! Using a starter to replace yeast in the recipes, this gives the unmistakable tang and texture to sourdough breads. We have teamed up with the brilliant Kate Ampomah, owner of Eat & Mess, who runs baking classes in London and Kent, to launch a mini-series of Sourdough baking. Depending on your experience of baking, you can sign up to part 1 for beginners and/or part 2 for intermediate level bakers.
Class 1: 2nd July- for complete beginners will include: Making starter to take home, making sourdough focaccia, garlic dough balls and pain au levain
Class 2: 16th July for intermediates: Attendees need to bring a pre baked sourdough loaf and some starter with them for discussion in workshop. We will make a classic miche loaf, an olive rye sourdough boule and a rosemary fougasse
Sign up for both classes to receive a £20 discount. Book now.
