How to make artisanal sourdough bread-Hands On Class
What you will learn
This is a 100% hands on class where each of you make two loaves of bread: Orto Loaf & Chocolate Savoury Bread. For this class it is Extremely important to arrive at 8am & no later 🙂
Learn to make sourdough, it is easy to do. And you don’t need a perfect schedule to make one or two.
You don’t need to fit in with it, it can fit in with you. Sure it won’t always be perfect but it will always taste good.
I will teach you to make your own leaven and I’ll give you some too.
You will learn how to care for it, don’t worry it’s an easy thing to do.
We will look at free form loaves and tin loaves and flours and kneading techniques.
Chats about bulk fermentation, proofing and scoring.
Humidity and how to use your fridge and oven… to slow things down…to speed things up.
For home bakers who want to produce theatre, flavour and fragrance in the kitchen.
For big-hearted people who want to engage in savoury performances, humble or grand. A backdrop for nurturing and chatting and caring for each other.
Slices of warm bread, butter melting, at night in the dark of winter, in the morning in the light of summer.
We will make lunch by preparing flatbreads. We will cook together three vegetarian dishes to fill our flatbreads. Coffee, tea and treats too.
Baking will take place in our wood-fired oven and you will take home two loaves of bread: ORTO Loaf with rye, wholemeal and white flour. Chocolate Loaf a rich savoury chocolate bread with dried fruit, seeds or nuts and bitter high quality chocolate.
Join me if you can…arrivederci! Mara
IMPORTANT: Please note it is crucial that you arrive on time. We will start at 8am sharp. It is not possible to participate if you arrive more than 5 minutes late, you will be invited to watch but you will not be able to be hands on & I am very sorry to say there will be no exceptions as it compromises the learning experience for all. The demands of this class simply do not allow for late arrivals. Thank you a million.
I am extremely sorry to say that it’s not possible to give refunds once payment is made, nor to change your booking to a different date or different class, regardless of reason, or lead up time. You can however sell your ticket to another.
We look forward to meeting you! Much huge care and all the very best, from Mara.
