Intro to Sourdough Bread

  • Gartur Stitch Farm Gartur POrt of Menteith, FK8 3JY UK (map)

Learn to bake rustic loaves of sourdough bread in your own kitchen.

Over the course of the day, you will:

  • Learn how to take care of a sourdough starter
  • Learn tips for fitting sourdough bread baking into your schedule (its a lot easier than it sounds)
  • Learn techniques for shaping, scoring and baking your bread
  •  Learn some great recipes for using sourdough starter in recipes like naan, pancakes and pie dough
  • Make a seasonal preserve or spread to go with your bread

Every workshop participant will leave with a sourdough starter, recipes, a banneton, 1kg of our favourite flour and a very full stomach.
