learn to make sourdough

This is a hands-on sourdough bread making class with award-winning baker and food writer, Dan Lepard. Dan is an expert baker known for his innovative approach to baking, who has written a number of books on baking and regularly features in The Guardian, Delicious magazine and other publications and was a judge on the first series of the Great Australian Bake Off. Head to our blog to find out a bit more about him.

In this sourdough masterclass you will learn to achieve the crust and crumb, taste and texture you’ve always aspired to. This includes creating and keeping a healthy leaven, mixing, kneading, shaping, and baking the perfect loaf.

You’ll be welcomed on arrival with a lovely Cookery School breakfast. The day also includes a beautiful lunch of La Fromagerie cheeses, paté, salad and Dan’s homemade bread. Then an afternoon tea break with time for a sourdough recap and a Q&A session.

To ensure that Dan is able to work with each of you individually, numbers will be limited to 14 people. You will leave with your loaves, a pot of leaven and a lot of new skills that you will be able to put into practice at home.
