I absolutely LOVED the sourdough bread workshop I attended on the weekend at Bee Sustainable! The class was both informative and hands on and equipped me with the knowledge and tools to bake my own sourdough bread at home! I left with the confidence that I’d learnt a new skill I am going to use again and the comfort that if I got stuck along the way there was someone I could reach out to! We enjoyed delicious bread baked in my oven at home that afternoon! It was incredible! Thank you!!!! Highly highly recommend!

Such a great workshop! I enjoyed it immensely and left armed with all the knowledge (as well as the confidence) I needed to get started baking my own sourdough at home.

Rick’s sourdough baking course was really excellent. Rick was so lovely, knowledgeable and encouraging and had everything very well prepared so we could experience and practise every step of the process. No mean feat to condense this into 2.5 hours, but it didn’t feel rushed. And the freshly baked bread we ate at the end with delicious Messmate honey was wonderful. Highly recommended!
