Full Day Making Sourdough

Full Day Making Sourdough

Pop on your pinny and roll up your sleeves, this special course has been designed to help develop your artisan culinary skills as we get busy with the starters, poolish and bigas creating beautiful sourdough bread in our London kitchen…

Sara Ward trained as a Bread Angel with Jane Mason of Virtuous Bread back in 2015 and has more recently completed a Five Day Intensive Bread course and further Croissant & Viennoiserie training with Richard Bertinet at his Cookery School in Bath.

You will be welcomed to Hen Corner with fresh coffee and home made treats. After an introduction to our time together, we will get busy with the dough creating wonderful breads throughout the day.

*Please note that this is an advanced baking course aimed at those already experienced in baking bread by hand*

Whilst the aromas of warm baking fills the air, and other batches are proving, we will enjoy a simple lunch to fuel us for the tasks of the afternoon. Over lunch you will have opportunity to stroll around the garden visiting the chickens and bees, then back to the kitchen to bake that bread…

We are pleased to bring you this London sourdough bread making course.

Recipes for the day may include:

  • Classic Wheat Sourdough
  • Cranberry & Pecan Sourdough – Great Taste Award
  • Malted Grain Sourdough
  • Seeded Rye Sourdough
  • Spiced Fruit Sourdough Loaf

Everyone goes home with their hand made bread, a couple more loaves to bake in the morning, banneton, dough scraper, pot of ferment, recipe sheets and the confidence to make more bread at home.

“I attended the full day sourdough bread making course. From the moment Sara greeted me and two other guests, we had a great experience. Sara put us at our ease and explained what we would be making during the day. Everything went according to plan. Sara was incredibly well organised and answered all our queries as they arose. Lovely choice of breads baked, both savoury and sweet, and we all came home with a goodie bag which was a very welcome treat.”
