Ken Hercott grew up on a wheat farm in the Mallee, Victoria. He started baking at home using flour milled on farm, then took his passion to the US to work under Master baker Richard Bourdon, alongside Chad Robertson. Returning to Austalia, he then worked with John Downes ( the legend of Australian sourdough) at Newrybar and then at the Natural Tucker Bakery. There he honed his skills using a wood fired oven. Ken’s passion for sourdough bread led him to Europe, where he baked and taught at Fattoria Barbialla Nuova, in Tuscany.

Excellent class with very good and knowledgeable teacher.
This was a great class. a combination of demonstration and hands on was perfect.
Soooo much, everything I've always wanted to know about sourdough. The highlight for me was kneading the beautiful dough, and eating the treats at the end!!
