Have you ever wanted to take a crash course in sourdough bread baking? This workshop will cover the fundamentals of sourdough baking in two hours. We will cover basic mixing, shaping, and scoring techniques. Each participant will leave with a jar of sourdough starter. The workshop will be followed by a tasting. 

Please bring a large bowl and small jar to take home dough and starter!

All proceeds from this event will go directly to building a wood-fired bread oven at the Eden Hall Campus! Learn more about this exciting project here.
