The Basics of Whole Grain Sourdough


September 25, 2021 10AM – 2PM

An introduction to whole grains and baking naturally leavened breads at home! This class is a lecture/observation based class, with a few chances to get your hands doughy. Naturally leavened breads are most commonly known as ‘sourdough’. Enjoy learning about this ‘old world’ method of leavening breads without the use of commercial or instant yeast. The long fermentation of naturally leavened breads gives the wild yeast, in the starter/sourdough culture, a chance to break down the complex proteins of wheat. This makes it easier for our bodies to digest while also preserving all the good stuff!!

We will be providing a bountiful lunch at the end of class featuring local products to enjoy with the bread baked in the class. Students will return home with recipes and their own Sourdough Starter (‘the Mother’)!
