Classic Sourdough Bread

Certainly some of our most popular bread making classes are about baking a classic sourdough country bread. Our version is part stone-ground flour, part artisan wheat, spelt and rye, and it is made entirely with natural leavening.

It's a simple bread, made the way artisan bread has been made for hundreds of years. Using our own sourdough starter, this bread is done by hand and enjoys an exceptional long fermentation time. A mix of several heritage wheat, spelt and rye flours that vary with the season, and careful handling gives this bread its exceptional texture, crust and flavor. It’s baked at very high temperature in the wood fired oven.


We have been teaching how to make the classic sourdough loaf in everything from private classes to community and food festivals over the years and developed many variations while preserving the true character of this bread.

This bread is taught in all Sourdough baking classes and out Bread Baking 101 classes as well as in our workshops and online lectures.
