Sourdough Baking Workshop

Sourdough Baking Masterclass

Come and spend a day learning what sourdough bread is, how to maintain a sourdough starter, and how to bake delicious bread at home.

It's a practical class and you will learn how to mix, fold, stretch and shape dough and bake a range of sourdough loaves including a variety of wheat & rye sourdoughs, with a little veg magic thrown in.

All equipment will be provided and you will leave with everything needed to produce beautiful bread at home: some of our 15 year old starter, detailed recipes with notes for further reading, as well as a pile of bread to take home that we will bake on the day.

Of course, no visit to The Riverford Field Kitchen would be complete without a 100% organic, flavoursome lunch, cooked for you by our chefs.

This is the perfect course for those who with no previous experience in sourdough baking or those who would like to build on their knowledge of baking sourdough at home.

When: Tuesday 7th May 2024

Time: 9.30am - 4.30pm (please note, the workshop can run over a little so please be aware of this if booking public transport)

Price: £150 per person
