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!

We learned how to knead the bread and handle the dough and at the end got to sample some delicious tasting bread with yummy honey from the bee sustainable shop. All the supplies you need to bake bread can be bought there. Unfortunately we had a bit of unluckiness with the weather, the humidity made the dough hard to handle. A fun class and the teacher was very nice.
