 Join us in-person at the bakehouse for a day of hands-on baking to learn all about the craft of sourdough bread baking. This is a level 0-1 class, so if you are an absolute beginner (never baked with sourdough before), or already experimented with some sourdough baking and want to go deeper, this class is for you.

In this workshop you will not only explore the craft of baking with sourdough, but also the techniques and methods that make sourdough bread so unique and delicious.

We will be making different bread recipes (and go through the various steps), while also discussing all aspects of making, feeding and maintaining a starter culture for bread baking. Maintaining a starter culture is easy and manageable for all bakers, and  we'll discuss different options that work for your schedule.

We will also discuss the tools of sourdough management, and how develop certain properties in your starter culture. We finish the class with a guided tasting, where we pair different foods and flavors with our breads and learn the basics of food pairing.

Discover the beauty of sourdough in this one-day intensive workshop, held in the inspiring surroundings of the Vermont bakehouse, where we invite you to unwind and immerse in the craft of baking. 

This is our most popular class and is offered only once this summer - please register early. Unsure if this is for you? Email us for questions.
