Introduction to Sourdough

£185.00 5 hours 45 minutes

Learn the art of Sourdough with our master baker, Jacqui O’Shea who brings to the table her extensive knowledge of bread.

Jacqui has gained valuable skills and knowledge while baking with Richard Bertinet.

Our first course will take place on Saturday 24th February 2024.



In this 1-day workshop you will learn about wild yeast, how to make a ferment and how to bake a sourdough loaf from start to finish. Understanding the steps required will give you the confidence to return home and recreate the magical process. Making sourdough needn’t be challenging! The course will include a dough scraper and your very own jar of starter to nurture at home.

Lunch provided by our chef, Jacqui O’Shea.
