What you will do

Single session

Workshop | 2 Focaccia and leaven ( sourdough)

We will learn about, practice and discuss, using different grades of flour. You will gain an understanding of hydration rates ( the amount of water used in relation to flour ) and start to understand how this affects finished dough and bread textures.

Plus- full instructions for building your starter (made last week) in-to a production leaven ready for you first sourdough.

Series 1 | Bread & Dough Workshops in ‘Series |1 Bread & Dough’ - consists of three blocks-each one building on the next to create a stable and balanced set of skills, for you to advance from.

We will talk through, mix, shape and bake a variety of breads using methods and techniques that will serve you well for years to come. Each week you will go home with two items made entirely yourself from mix to bake* and each dough you are taught can be endlessly adapted at home to your personal taste and made your own.

As well as being taught to prepare two different doughs in each block, you will also gain all the tools you need by the end of ‘Series |1 Bread & Dough’ to go on to make your own naturally leavened breads at home, such as a classic Rye Sourdough.

By the end of the first workshop you will create your very own natural starter to take home and nurture. Week two we will talk through the steps of turning your starter into a working leaven, so that by week three we will be able to talk through and troubleshoot your first home bakes.

I have been very fortunate to be taught twice at different venues in London by Marcia. She really knows her stuff. She patiently and expertly guides her students so they can make amazing breads. I thoroughly enjoyed her classes. As well as helping us make delicious breads, Marcia made the classes interesting and fun. Brilliant value for money.

It was a very informative course. It helped me understand better the basics in breadmaking and sourdough and I am using this knowledge since. It gave me more confidence in making my own bread and pizza (as I use same dough and works perfectly). We have also learned how to make pasta and different types of bread as our course was structured this way. We all enjoyed the course and we all keep baking since. Thank you Marcia for educating us, we are so grateful we had such an amazing and knowledgeable tutor as you!
