Event description

Description

Sourdough. The Holy Grail of baking. Only the Gods and the Gifted get it right, right?

Wrong. I’ll teach you everything I know about sourdough; how to make and tend your starter, when to feed it, what consistency to aim for, how to bake it and what else you can do with it, such as use it as a probiotic additive, make crackers, muffins, pancakes… I will take the fear out of sourdough for you.

In 2018 I entered my very first baking competition, the Craft Bakers Association Western Region Championships, pitting my sourdough against all the other sourdoughs across Wales and the SouthWest. And I won it - First Prize!

Now one essential part of my business is supplying top cafes, restaurants and shops in Somerset with my award-winning sourdough and on this course I’ll teach you how to make it. You’ll get to take home the bread that you baked, a choice of sourdough starters and all the course material and knowledge you’ll need to carry on this rewarding hobby at home.

Why is it the Lazy Bakers course?

There's no kneading, no special equipment and no faffing about. I teach you what I know and make you a better baker.

How long will it take?

We’ll be baking on the centre table in the deli so the group will be intimate – no more than 5 of us. The course will run from 10am and should end around 1530, although as you’ll find out with dough you have to be a little flexible! We'll break for lunch part way through so please let me know if you have any special dietary needs.
