Sourdough 101 – Ben is Back!
Nothing beats the flavor and chewy texture of warm sourdough bread and nothing parallels the aroma of a fresh baked loaf right from your oven. In this class, you’ll learn how to make rustic sourdough breads using a homemade sourdough starter from Ben Campbell, the head baker at Seacreatures, previously from Lark and owner of the popular pop up bakery Ben’s Breads. In this workshop, you can look forward to a fun, hands-on session going over everything necessary to make your own starter, and mix, portion, shape and bake the perfect sourdough. After enjoying your own wonderfully crisp and flavorful loaves you’ll go home with the new found confidence to bake your own sourdough bread at home. You’ll also get to take home a starter to feed and a loaf of bread to share and a dough shaped ready to bake the next day!
You make with Ben’s sourdough bread, and one of the best ever croque-monsieur sandwich to enjoy for a late lunch. As time allows in class we experiment with the dough having made english muffins, bagels, baguettes or pizza to show the diversity of the dough.
