SOURDOUGH BAKING & HERITAGE GRAINS WITH LOUISE BANNON
Oct 13 | 12-4pm | SOLD OUT
- October 13, 2018
12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
A mix of demo and hands on workshop on sourdough bread and pastry making with a specific focus on heritage grains.
Only a century ago Ireland had more than 2000 individual mills where grain was brought and milled at a local level. We now only have 15 industrial mills in the whole country most of which are working with mono crop wheat.
Heritage grains are important for their genetic make up, their resilience and their flavour. There is a strong movement at the moment to bring back these varieties from seed banks but they generally do not have the same high gluten content that we are now used to in our flour and overall are more temperamental to work with.
Louise Bannon has been dedicating the last twelve months to working directly with farmers who are reviving some of European heritage grains and she is testing these flours on a daily basis in her bread and pastry making.
this workshop is limited to 15 people
