Description

Ever wanted to bake sourdough bread at home? Creating your own sourdough bread is easier than you might think. Join Rick, of The Life We Want as he demonstrates this age old process and introduces you to the equipment and skills required to get started baking at home.

With a Naturopathic degree and over a decade’s experience teaching nutrition our demonstrator Rick Lavender has a wealth of knowledge to share. Baking sourdough bread has been a natural response for Rick to the challenge of living a healthy life.

At the conclusion of the workshop you will have a basic understanding of :

  • How to create and look after your own Sourdough starter culture
  • What kind of flour to use for the best nutrition and results
  • The equipment needed to produce a great looking and tasting sourdough tin loaf at home
  • How to knead sticky high hydration dough for a more authentic sourdough loaf
  • What bread dough looks and feels like at its various stages of preparation and development
  • How to bake sourdough bread using a bread tin in a home oven

During this hands on workshop you will make your own sourdough starter culture to take home. You will mix and hand knead a 1kg batch of sourdough. Shape and prepare dough for baking at home. And observe Rick baking a finished sourdough loaf.

Participants will be limited to 8 to maintain an informal interactive format.

The workshop will include:

  • Comprehensive workshop notes
  • Sourdough starter culture
  • Discount on a professional quality bread tin

A bread tin will be required for this class. You can bring your own (450g size is good) or purchase one at the workshop at a discounted rate.

My partner and I used to bake our own sourdough bread - we were given the course as a gift. We thought we'd use it as a refresher - but already almost "knew it all". We were very wrong ! - we learned a lot - both practical and theoretical. Rick is a very good and engaging presenter. The course was finely honed to give you all you need to consistently make good bread. Things were very cleverly organised to work around the "dead times" while dough rises etc. Brilliantly executed and literally hands-on! Rick touched on nutrition and food science here and there and my partner (who has a Masters of Human Nutrition degree) could not fault his technical information either. Thoroughly recommended!

The sourdough bread workshop was well run and well designed. In 2 hours it covered a 12 hour process, giving me hands on experience with each of the steps involved. Rick was knowledgeable and clear, his teaching experience enabling a great “classroom “ experience. Preparation before the class was obviously extensive, and the materials provided at the end of the class generous. A very positive experience and one that made me look at other classes offered by Bee Sustainable.

What a fun and informative Bread Making session. I came home inspired and excited to bake my bread and continue growing my starter and sharing what I've learnt. Great Teacher.
