Sat 8 Jun 2019: An introduction to sourdough baking

This event is in the past.


Start: 10am, Finish 12.30pm

Cost: £30.00

Location: The Curiosities Company, 39 Sheep Street, Charlbury


More and more people are finding that shop bread is making them ill. Seeking a better bread I started making sourdough a few years ago. On this course I teach a fool proof method to make amazing sourdough at home. You get to take home some dough and continue the proving at home, baking a wonderful loaf the following morning.

Why not sandwich some of our Curious Bacon™ between two slices of bread you've just baked. You'll really appreciate the difference and not want to go back to shop bread and preservative stuffed bacon ever again.
