An afternoon of tasting and making sourdough breads.
This is an introductory class to Sourdough bread making for those who still need to get their heads around what sourdough is and how to make it at home. Shane Palmer and Monika Walecka will talk you through the essentials of making a mother, taking care of it, fermenting, shaping and baking your bread
They will have some dough pre mixed for you to try your hand at shaping and folding and there will be tasters of some different sourdough breads as well as a few other nibbles to keep you going.
Please bring a jar with you as everyone will be making their own mother and taking it home with them to look after and transform into their own delicious sourdough.
