So you want to learn how to make sourdough?  Well, you are in the right place!

This course is for the serious baker and will give you real skills and knowledge to go away and make your own sourdough. 

The only way to really experience something properly is to engage in each part of the process from start to finish; with sourdough this takes time.  

This 2 day course is tailored to the individual so as well as covering sourdough breads, we shall also be making a variety of other sourdough products.  These could include cakes, desserts, pastries, enriched doughs.  The extra things we make really depends on you, what you want to get out of the class.


Below is a summary of what we will be doing each day, but this is not set in stone.
