Introduction to Sourdough
15th September, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm£75
Enter into the world of sourdough bread with our expert Helen from the White Cottage Baking School. She’ll teach you the principles of making delicious sourdough bread in our charming Victorian bakery. During the day you will learn how to mix and develop a strong dough: to shape it, prove it and finally to score it and prepare it for baking.
You will learn about the process of working with wild yeast: the good bacteria and lactic acid at play within the culture, as well as the care and maintenance of your own starter. You’ll follow the story of flour from field to fork with a tour of our working, eighteenth century watermill and get a chance to experiment with our Victorian, wood-fired oven. You’ll leave at the end of the day with your own sourdough starter, a proving basket, a dough scraper and all the knowledge you need to start on your own baking journey.
