This class is designed for those who have already taken our Sourdough Essentials class, or are confident home bakers looking to further their skills and knowledge of sourdough.
Following on from our original bread class, the e5 bakehouse Advanced Sourdough class offers you the opportunity to consider various aspects of sourdough baking in depth.
During this class you’ll learn the secret to making our popular hackney wild, a high hydration 100% heritage wholemeal loaf, and a sourdough Greek flatbread. Each one of these loaves uses a different sourdough leaven and gives an opportunity to better understand how they affect the flavours and textures of your sourdough. You’ll also learn how to incorporate porridge and sprouted grain into your loaves.
We’ll consider and discuss some further baking issues such as different milling techniques, the importance of organic farming, working with heritage grains, and understanding baker’s percentage and their use.
The course will be led by one of our experienced bakers and offers an opportunity for students to engage with them on issues, obstacles and difficulties they’ve encountered in their own sourdough baking experiences.
