Back by popular demand, Baker Bettie is here for an all day sourdough workshop for Beginners. This 6 hour hands on sourdough intensive will focus on gaining an in depth understanding of basic sourdough technique and theory.This is the class you have been waiting for! In this class we will cover:
Class will start with a toast bar of a variety of sourdough breads and accompaniments to sample.
Once introductions have concluded, we will review the basics of what sourdough is and you will receive your own pot of sourdough starter for you to bake with during class and take home to use in all future baking.
We will review the basic sourdough formula and you will learn how to adapt the formula to make endless variations of sourdough bread. Each student will be guided in making their own recipe for their sourdough to mix during class.
After our doughs are mixed, you will be given a dough that is ready to be shaped. The chef will demonstrate shaping techniques to build tension in your dough to ensure a tall loaf. We will shape our loaves together and let them proof to bake later in class.
We will then learn how to feed and maintain our starters. The chef will review how to keep your starter healthy, how to troubleshoot, and how to keep your starter refrigerated if you will not bake with it often.
Next, we will prepare a delicious lunch together of sourdough pizza with a variety of topping offerings.
After lunch, we will score and bake our risen loaves. Each student will take home their baked loaf from class as well as the dough they made during class to bake at home later. The chef will then demo a few sourdough discard baked goods for the class to sample.
The class will conclude with plenty of time for questions. Each student will walk away with bread, a sourdough starter, a banneton basket, and the confidence and knowledge to continue their sourdough journey at home!
Substitutions and Class Format
We reserve the right to substitute ingredients, menus, recipes, chefs and instructors. Unless noted otherwise, all of our classes are hands-on and participatory in style. Our class size is limited and classes are structured to allow each student the opportunity to work closely with the chef in the preparation of dishes and to observe, up-close, the ingredients, tools and techniques used in the making of all dishes. The exception to the hands-on format are classes labeled as “Demonstration” or “Demo” or “Lecture”.
