How to make sourdough bread

Learn to make sourdough, it is easy to do. And you don’t need a perfect schedule to make one or two.

You don’t need to fit in with it, it can fit in with you. Sure it won’t always be perfect but it will always taste good.

Mara will teach you to make your own leaven and she’ll give you some too.

You will learn how to care for it, don’t worry it’s an easy thing to do.

You will look at free form loaves and tin loaves and flours and kneading techniques.

Chats about bulk fermentation, proofing and scoring.

Humidity and how to use your fridge and oven… to slow things down…to speed things up.

For home bakers who want to produce theatre, flavour and fragrance in the kitchen.

For big-hearted people who want to engage in savoury performances, humble or grand. A backdrop for nurturing and chatting and caring for each other.

Slices of warm bread, butter, melting, at night in the dark of winter, in the morning in the light of summer.

You will make lunch by preparing flatbreads and baking these too. Mara will have three vegetarian dishes ready to fill the flatbreads. Coffee and tea.

Baking will take place in a wood-fired oven.
