Best experience ever my son and I really enjoyed ourselves. We are now hooked on baking bread.

Good class - quite good for beginners only, bread was ok. The teacher is good but not impressed by the bread taste and recipe. The crust is not very thick or crunchy, bread was quite heavy

Fantastic class! Jeanne is very knowledgeable, she'll provide you with all the necessary information to bake delicious sourdough bread and how to maintain the starter. You'll walk away with a freshly baked loaf of bread, dough to bake another one at home and with a huge smile on your face and the eagerness to bake more, more and more!

The Fermentarium began its adventure in fermentation in 2014 at the Blackhorse Workshop, Walthamstow, London. At first the emphasis was on baking sourdough bread and pizza-making in a cob oven in the yard as well as sourdough bread-making classes.

In 2014 Simon and David wanted to share their experience and knowledge of fermenting and began to run lactic fermentation classes and then were joined by Anna in March 2016 and added further courses including Soft fermented drinks and dairy ferments.

In November 2016 the Blackhorse Workshop redeveloped the area occupied by the kitchen so now courses are run…

My partner and I had a brilliant time at the workshop! Hat was a great teacher and gave a good intro to the different stages for sourdough baking. Really great for beginners and for those with some baking experience. Nicely paced, with tips along the way. It was great to take a freshly baked loaf home, plus two doughs at different stages and beginning a starter culture in the workshop for future sourdough baking adventures! Would recommend :)
