Book now »
This workshop is an introduction to baking with wild yeast to create sourdough bread and baking. We’ll discuss the fundamentals of baking with wild yeasts, the methods of creating a sourdough starter, and how to look after it. Sourdough making is a slow process to allow the natural yeasts to work so we’ll have plenty of time to discuss, taste and ask questions. We’ll look at ingredients and techniques – and how to fit sourdough bread making into your life.
We’ll send you instructions on how to make a starter to bring to the workshop so that we can discuss (but don’t worry we’ll have some pre-made starter for you to use).
We’ll bake a Sourdough Loaf using our sourdough starter. You’ll use your own starter to create a Sourdough Cake and we’ll make Sourdough Pizza for lunch.
The course is suitable for beginners.
This is a hands-on cooking class with lots of hand kneading. All dishes made can be taken away and enjoyed at home.
This workshop will be led by Jackie Vural, an enthusiastic cook of many cuisines with a passion for breadmaking. Jackie has worked with Greener Kirkcaldy and loves sharing her skills.
Some cooking skills are required to enjoy this workshop i.e. basic knife skills. Please bring some containers to take home your food.
