The sun is shining, the bees are buzzing and nothing says summer like fresh bread and the last of fall’s preserves. Come out and learn the secrets and science involved in domesticating and caring for your own sourdough “Mother” starter.
Learn what makes sourdough starters and sourdough breads special, digest some tips and tricks to making and baking beautiful breads, and leave empowered by a basic know-how that will guide all your adventures for a lifetime of sourdough bread making.
Please come with your own knowledge as well as problems you have encountered and we will work to solve all manner of mysteries regularly encountered in our forays with flour and yeast with reference to science and our experiences. Also, please come prepared to sample some delicious bread!
Karen, our instructor for this workshop, is a professional baker as well as a DIY sourdough enthusiast. She has lots of experience and knowledge to share, and is an awesome lady to learn from!
