Event description

Description

The world of sourdough is vast and magical -- at this Sourdough + Cider Workshop you will learn the basics of baking with sourdough through hands-on work. Come spend the day with like-minded bakers learning about all things sourdough though an in-depth experience of making your own pie with a sourdough pie crust -- utilizing all of the different characteristics a healthy sourdough starter has to offer. You will also be participating in mixing + shaping sourdough loaves and get to smell + taste some right out of the oven. We will discuss wild yeast, the benefit of fermenting flour, and how you can use and maintain your take-home starter. You will leave with new-found knowledge and confidence to continue your sourdough baking adventures at home. At the end of our workshop, each student will go home with a recipe booklet, sourdough starter and instructions to keep it alive + well, and a loaf of sourdough and a pie to bake at home.

Our workshop takes place at the beautiful location of West Avenue Cider @ Somerset Orchards. We can take a small tour through the orchard and discuss the different apple varieties that Chris and Amy are growing. While our bread is proofing, we will be taking a break for a light lunch and cider tasting!

Extra Info:
We will be on our feet for the workshop, but we will be indoors in the barrel room of the Barn at West Ave. Please wear shoes you will be comfortable standing in for the day

Class sizes are kept small, which allows for an intimiate experience with plenty of opportunity to get your questions answered and get to know your fellow bakers.

Feel free (it is recommended) to bring a water bottle with you. Coffee will be provided in the morning and water will be available.
