Course description

Sourdough is known for its characteristic flavor (ranging from mild to strong), chewy texture, and crisp crust. From a health standpoint, it dominates when compared to standard loaves. Sourdough is by probiotic definition, a Super Food with more and different benefits to our digestive systems than yeast breads. Older than the pyramids, healthier than a multivitamin, easy as... well, easier after one fun and delicious evening!

Take your baking skills up a notch by entering the 10,000 year old world of fermented foods! In one evening, you will learn the differences in common local flour types and how to eat them for better health.  You will take home a sourdough starter with a pedigree that will never die (as long as it is fed trillions of microbes and bacteria that will make you a little healthier). Come learn the tips and tricks to bake professional Artisan sourdough with hands-on training and of course, with samples!
