Open Kitchen | Trade Secrets | Sourdough Bread

Welcome to the fascinating art and science of sourdough baking, a tradition that dates back centuries and continues to captivate home bakers around the world.

Sourdough bread is more than just a delicious staple – it’s a living expression of natural fermentation, where wild yeast and bacteria work their magic to create flavour, texture, and complexity. In this class, we’ll demystify the sourdough process, from creating and maintaining a sourdough starter to mastering the perfect loaf.

We’ll explore the fundamentals of sourdough baking, including techniques for mixing, kneading, shaping, and scoring dough. Along the way, we’ll discuss the importance of timing, temperature, and hydration, as well as troubleshooting common challenges to ensure your sourdough success when using a regular oven at home!

Perfect for the intermediate to advanced home baker.
