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 whole-grain flour.
How it works
Workshops are limited to 10 participants and the cost is $85 per participant, and there is plenty of time for discussion, asking questions, and getting to know enthusiastic bakers from around Bloomington!
This class begins at home, as we walk you through preparing starter and dough via Zoom connection, then we meet at the Bakery to shape the loaves and bake the bread using our brick oven! The rough plan is that we will feed our starter on Saturday afternoon at 5 p.m. We will meet on Zoom on Sunday morning to mix our dough at 9 a.m, and then come to the bakery at noon to begin shaping our dough. We will bake our loaves and be done with the class around 3 p.m.
