Event description
In-Depth, Hands-On Sourdough Workshop, discussing grains and utilizing Sourdough Starter to it's highest potential

About this Event

This is a fully hands-on workshop, where you will indeed leave with your hands full!

Sourdough starter can be used for much more than making delicious loaves of bread. We will look at Sourdough every step of the way -- from mixing, to shaping, to scoring and baking. In this workshop we will create a variety of recipes using our starter, while also making some classic loaves for your to take home and bake the following day, whenever it will fit in to your schedule -- making your house smell so homey and delicious!

We will be working our way through 3 different recipes that utilize sourdough starter:

** Loaves of Sourdough Bread -- using, comparing, and discussing the different grains available

** Sourdough Bagels

** Sourdough Biscuits

Making quality baked goods is easier when you start with good quality ingredients. We will be using only local, organic ingredients when possible, or suitable for our application. In this workshop we will discuss a variety of grains and get familiar with their scents, flavours, and appearances. Each Baker will have two opportunities to mill fresh grain -- once for a little packet to take home, and another as a choose-your-own-adventure for our Sourdough Biscuits recipe. We will also be getting a little work out in by hand-kneading and shaping sourdough bagel dough, as well as boiling and baking some for our lunch.

While our sourdough is fermenting away, and our other products are resting, we will sit down for a relaxing, seasonal lunch, enjoy each other's company, and also discuss a wide variety of books, websites, and tools out there to keep you on the right track once you get back home. Group sizes are kept small to allow for all of your questions to be fully answered and connect with the people around you.

At the end of the workshop, each Baker will go home with:

:: A detailed booklet containing all of the information we covered in our workshop -- as well as the knowledge and skill to turn your workshop products into delicious final products from the comfort of your own home

:: A jar of sourdough starter for your to continue on your baking journey with

:: 2 loaves of sourdough to be baked the following day

:: 6 Sourdough Bagels to be baked anytime in the next 36 hours

:: 8 Sourdough Biscuits

:: A new network of like-minded baking acquaintances

Extra Info:

We will be on our feet for the workshop -- please wear comfortable footwear.

Feel free to bring a water bottle with you.
