This workshop is for beginners and home bakers. It is also suitable for anyone who wants to join a group for a day to explore the art and science of bread making. You will leave at the end of the day with a variety of fresh breads that you have baked. What you will learn You will learn how to make a range of really good dough and breads using both a sourdough starter and organic dried baker's yeast. The mystique of successful bread making will be explained, including the role of hydration, fermentation, effects of flour types, heat and time. You will prepare and bake at least three different types of bread with versatile recipes that can be adapted to make a wide variety of other breads at home. Our introduction to sourdough at this workshop will teach you how to create your own sourdough starter from scratch (just flour, water and time) and how to bake using that starter (including refreshment, fermentation, scaling, dividing, shaping, proving and baking). Throughout the workshop we will talk about the history of bread, different grains and their role in bread making, health and food.
