Trainer Bio: 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. Check out his facebook page

What an amazing day! I thoroughly enjoyed the course, Ken, the instructor, was interesting and shared his knowledge and passion for sourdough bread making to the whole group and answered all our questions (we had lots!). I highly recommend to anyone and everyone to try this course. Great value for money and I'm definitely inspired to begin my baking journey and to experiment and explore further. Thank you Ken!
