I really enjoyed this class. The presenter was personable and showed the technique required for making sourdough very clearly. The bonus was two loaves of delicious bread. The venue was also good as you could then buy any equipment you required.

I really enjoyed the workshop. Rick was patient, thorough and extremely well prepared. He even gave us contact details if there were problems & detailed instructions. I have since baked 5 delicious loaves which indicate what a success the workshop was. I would certainly recommend this class to others.
