e5 Bakehouse has been teaching the science behind baking sourdough bread and inspiring new bakers from around the world for years. This class is designed for those who have already taken our Sourdough Bread Class or are confident home bakers looking to further their skills and knowledge of sourdough. Following on from our original bread class, the Advanced Sourdough class offers you the opportunity to consider in depth various aspects of sourdough baking. During this class you’ll learn the secret to making our popular Hackney Wild loaf, a high hydration 100% heritage stoneground wholemeal loaf, our very adaptable porridge loaf and our signature sourdough flatbreads.
This class is tailored for people showing an interest in understanding where wheat comes from and how it's grown, you'll learn more about the different varieties and how soil health and diversity is so important. Your teacher will explain how to use bakers percentage when home baking and experimenting.
You'll go home with a take-home sourdough starter, proving basket, recipes, e5 dough scraper. You'll be served a light welcome spread with homemade jam, bread and coffee or tea, a freshly made seasonal lunch and cake and biscuits in the afternoon! Of course you’ll be taking plenty of bread home too.
You’ll also get 10% off in our shop if you’d like to buy any additional baking equipment, cookbooks or organic produce to take home.
Class size is limited to 10 people. Please bring a large bag with you for carrying all your breads home.
