Sourdough - More than Just Bread

Course summary

An ‘all new’ class run by Michael & Therese who have taught the popular Basic Sourdough Breadmaking at YCC for many years.

A 5-hour workshop that shows you that there is so much more you can do with a sourdough culture than just use it to make a loaf of bread. You will make Grissini, English Muffins, Pittas, and Sourdough Crackers… and because the class runs from 10am to 3pm, you also make your own sourdough pizza to eat for lunch.

All ingredients supplied.

The class assumes that you know how to bake bread and have your own sourdough starter culture at home. As usual, the workshop is hands-on right from the start.

What you will learn

  • how to make Grissini, English Muffins, Pita bread, Sourdough crackers, and Sourdough pizza

What you will get

  • doughy fingers!
  • extensive tips, skills, and knowledge
  • recipes & notes
  • take home what you have baked (unless you eat them all in the class!)

What you need to bring

  • apron
  • a container/bag to take home what you have made
  • wear closed toe shoes
