In this workshop, we will teach you how to bake your own sourdough bread at home using a wild-yeast, naturally fermented starter. This 12-hour course will teach you how to maintain and feed your sourdough starter, techniques in turning and kneading the dough, an explanation of tools and more. There will be brief lectures on sourdough and health, the gut brain connection, the history of bread and about fermented foods in general. All participants will take home their own sourdough bread and starter. A limited number of baking tools will also be available for purchase. All meals will be provided. Hotel rooms are available for an additional charge (20% discount off room rates for registered sourdough workshop guests).
