What you will do

Single session

Workshop - 1 Sweet & Savory Focaccia and Raisin and Orange loaf

We will learn about, practice and discuss using our hands as tools to mix and shape dough.

We will discuss the importance of temperature and what to look for in flour and commercial yeasts.

Plus full instructions for making you own natural starter leaven (sourdough starter)

Each of our workshops build 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.

You will go home with two items made entirely yourself from mix to bake. 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, you will also gain all the tools you need to make your own naturally leavened breads at home, such as a classic Rye Sourdough.

By the end of this first workshop you will create your very own natural starter to take home and nurture.

With full instructions on maintenance and use.

This was a great course. We made a wide range of breads (which all came out really tasty!) and learned about sourdough starters as well. Marcia is extremely knowledgeable and generous in sharing that knowledge, and has a lovely light touch in doing so. Very much recommended.
