Join our Co-op Kitchen Team, including our experienced sourdough aficionados, for this basic course in Sourdough bread-baking! Our team will lead you through a tested recipe and an in-depth discussion about Sourdough starters, their care and maintenance, and how to use your starter to make delicious sourdough bread! This will be a great way to learn new bread making skills or brush up old ones.
We will be making Sourdough Loaves, using flour from one of our local producers and the well-loved "Parkdale" sourdough strain. You will learn about the history, theory, and practice of sourdough, gain hands-on experience working with the starter and bread making, and leave with some freshly-baked sourdough bread, dough to bake at home & your very own starter.
