Learn how to make crusty, sourdough loaves! We will show you how to feed and care for sourdough starter, mix dough, form loaves, slash and bake. We’ll talk about the flours we use, and what qualities to look for in a good bread flour.
How it works
Workshops are limited to 10 participants and the cost is $95 per participant, and there is plenty of time for discussion, asking questions, and getting to know enthusiastic bakers from around Bloomington!
The rough plan is that we will mix dough right away, then prepare pizza dough and toppings, and eat around noon in the yard. After a leisurely lunch we’ll shape the loaves, and then we’ll have a break while the bread is rising. There will be some time for discussion and browsing a few bread books. Some past participants have gone for a walk or brought something along to read or knit. When the bread comes out, about 6 o’clock, class is over.
