This workshop is an introduction to baking with wild yeast to create sourdough bread and baking.

Please note the workshop is made up of 2 sessions (participants should attend both):

Thursday 12th September, 6pm – 8.30pm – Session 1 – this is all about getting started with sourdough baking.

We’ll discuss the fundamentals of baking with wild yeasts, we’ll look at the methods of creating a sourdough starter and how to look after it. We’ll then make a starter for you to take home and look after so that you can bring it to the next session.

Saturday 21st September, 10am – 3pm – Session 2 – this is a practical, hands-on session when we’ll bake with sourdough starters. You’ll use your own starter to create a sourdough loaf and also some sourdough baking. Sourdough making is a slow process to allow the natural yeasts to work so we’ll have plenty of time to discuss and ask questions.

On our fun and informative workshop you’ll learn some basic principles that you can then use at home to get started with sourdough baking. We’ll look at the ingredients and techniques – and how to fit sourdough bread making into your life using a weekly schedule. You’ll leave inspired and ready to start baking regularly.

The course is suitable for beginners ((we’ll be using wheat flour – this workshop is not suitable for anyone with a gluten allergy). Please bring a bag and a box to take home your creations from session 2. There is disabled parking on site and The Lang Spoon Community Kitchen is wheelchair and mobility friendly.
