Sourdough 101 – CANCELED
At Well Bread we use sourdough starter that is more than 125 years old. In this class you’ll learn about creating your own Sourdough starter; how to care for it and how to use it in more than just bread. Proper sourdough bread can’t happen in a two-hour class, but Chef Cat will guide you how to make your own dough (you’ll take that home to bake later) and how to get those big holes in your own sourdough bread. This is a basic class and will give you a great head start to caring for a sourdough starter.
Sourdough breads are a labour of love and take a lot of practice to master – it’s a living organism and can be as unpredictable as a human toddler. If you’re looking for a fool-proof bread baking class….this is NOT it. You’ll take home your own dried portion of Yukon Pioneer Ione Christensen’s 125-year-old sourdough starter and some bread dough you’ll make in class to ferment at home and bake in the days following the class.
We’ll make sourdough pancakes and enjoy some other sourdough treats made by Chef Cat before the class. You’ll receive all the recipes and some confidence to care for your newest “family member”.
