In the artisan bread workshop, which is a companion to our ancient grains & whole grains baking workshop, we’ll show you our techniques for mixing, kneading, shaping and baking outstanding sourdough bread. We’ll also show you how to get the same results in your home oven. We will make pizzas for lunch using fresh ingredients from our garden.
Each participant will mix two different doughs using our sourdough starter and some of our freshly stone-milled flour. After a period of fermentation, you will shape them into four loaves of bread. While we wait for them to rise, we will prepare the pizza lunch and delve deeper into selected topics with a slideshow, discussion, and baking demonstration in our home oven. At the end of the class, we will bake all the loaves in the brick oven. You will take home your loaves and a piece of sourdough starter, as well as the recipes and instructions on how to care for your starter. Our freshly-milled whole grain flours will be available for sale.
This workshop is offered on Sundays from 10 am to 5:15 pm or Saturdays from 11 am to 6:15 pm.

We are now using the Challenger Breadpan for our home bake demos.
