Taster Workshops

 

sourdough The Taster workshops are just that.  They give you a brief overveiw of how to make & bake sourdough, including hands on experience, we cover the science behind sourdough, (but not in a crazy way!), the way different flours work & the most important part of sourdough baking, how to maintain your starter & understand it.  

THE FORAGING WORKSHOPS ARE BACK!

Hosted in Springburn Allotment Gardens, we shall be looking at a variety of very common plants which plague gardeners & allotmenteers.  We will look at the nutritional & medicinal profile of some of the super foods which are growing right under our nose & hopefully next time you are busy about to yank them up, you may decide to utilise them instead or leave them for the wild life to enjoy.  We shall also make some simple home remedies.  For those of you who decide to stay on & have some food, we will then enjoy a delicious foraged meal.  This is a mix & match.  You can either do just the foraging walk & home remedies, just the foraged meal or you can do both, prices for all options are at the bottom of the page.  So what are you waiting for, get your wellies out & come down & join us while we "go wild" for a few hours!

SOURDOUGH BREADS WORKSHOPS

For the breads workshops, you will be making your own sourdough which you will take home to finish proving & bake at home, you will be shaping & baking some sourdough to eat with our lunch & we shall be making a starter from scratch which you will take home to nurture & if any of you wish to take some of my mature starter home with you, you can do.  We shall also be making & sampling some sourdough pancakes & looking at other ways of using your starter.

GLUTEN FREE FLOURS WORKSHOPS

This workshop will cover different flours & how the lack of gluten affects them.  We shall be making a starter from scratch which you will then take away to finish caring for at home & you can take some of my mature starter as well if you wish.  We'll be making a gluten free focaccia to have with our lunch & a loaf for you to take home to finish proving & bake at home.  There will also be some sourdough pancakes to sample & we will investigate other uses for your starter.


A WORD OF WARNING; Although we will be using gluten free flours for this workshop I cannot gurantee that there will be no cross contamination of gluten flours from production during the week.  This workshop will not be suitable for people who have a severe reaction to gluten.

FOCACCIA & FORAGING

This workshop combines both foraging & sourdough.  For this we shall be covering everything we normally do in the Sourdough Workshops, plus will we go out & gather some "wild" ingredients to go with our lunch & incorporate in to our sourdough. We will look at both the nutritional profile & medicinal uses of the plants we gather & the different ways we can use them.  This workshop is pretty much a full day & there will be plenty of foraged, fermented & sourdough refreshments on hand throughout, to keep your strength up!  

 

SOURDOUGH CAKES & DESSERTS WORKSHOPS

For the cakes & desserts workshop we shall be making a sourdough vegan cake, pudding, pastry & cookie as well as covering care of your starter & making a starter from scratch.  As with the breads, you can take some of my mature starter away with you too, if you wish. 

A few words of caution regarding the cakes & desserts.  This is NOT a healthy raw vegan workshop.  I want to enjoy cakes & desserts which taste the way my Grandmother used to make them & she was an excellent baker.  They were meltingly moreish & totally tasty & comforting, but healthy they certainly weren't.  That said, this kind of food is eaten as a treat & it is surely good for our soul to be decadent now & again. 

 

After support for all workshops will be given, so if you experience any hitches you can be rest assured that help will be on hand.  Everything you bake on the day, will be going home with you. 

You will leave the workshops with a real knowledge of how sourdough works during baking & the confidence & skills to go & make & bake your own sourdough at home. 

The foraging workshops will inspire you to look at what is literally growing all around us & encourage you to utilise the amazing health benefits of some of these "wild" superfoods, to boost your health both nutritionally & medicinally.

A refreshments will be provided at all workshops, ( I don't want you leaving hungry!), some of which you will have made yourselves during the course of the sessions.
