When you are finished with this baking course you will be able to mix, fold, proof, score, steam and bake a loaf of authentic sourdough bread.

It will take two weeks to make your own stable sourdough starter or  you can purchase one online. While getting your starter going, you will learn a short history of sourdough and go over some of the basic techniques including hydration and measuring. Once your starter is stable, we will begin with an Alaskan sourdough and then branch out to wetter high hydration dough like Ciabatta and Tyra Loaf (which includes motherdough). After that we go on to Blistered Crust Sourdough and a mixed whole grain and white loaf called March Madness Sourdough.  We’ll even tackle a challenging 100% whole wheat loaf at 100% hydration.
