It took us at least a couple of years to master the art and we would have loved a workshop like this to make things easier. The internet is filled with helpful and not so helpful and confusing recommendations making it hard to get your head around it.

We are here to help you and answer all your questions in regard to sourdough bread.

For lunch we will have some sourdough bread and herbal spreads available. Please bring a salad to share.

In this workshop you will learn:

- how to manage, maintain and care for your sourdough starter

- how to make a beautiful focaccia to impress your friends and family at pot luck dinners

- how to make seedy sourdough crackers, which are a must on every cheese board

- how to build a dough, do stretch & folds, signs of fermentation, resting times, rise and shaping a dough
