Making your own sourdough bread. (4 hours class)
(+5 more dates)
Please note. WE ONLY ACCEPT STUDENTS FROM 15 YO ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT OR 16 YO ON THEIR OWN.
For the bread that you will make during this short class 4 hours, you will be using sourdough and you will learn how to make sourdough and look after it. After this course you will look at bread in a different way, and when you will have tasted it… you will really think twice and choose carefully where you buy your bread from or just continue making it yourself.
To really appreciate bread and make it right you need three ingredients: technique, patience (lots of it!) and love… If you have them all, I will turn you into a master baker.
In this course, you will learn how to make two different sourdough bread. Traditional French baguette and dark rye bread.
