e5 Bakehouse has been teaching the science behind baking sourdough bread and inspiring new bakers from around the world for years. Join their ranks by learning from one of our experienced bakers in this fun full-day class for beginners. You’ll be introduced to the basics of sourdough baking and learn how to make a sourdough starter – and keep it alive. We’ll teach you the techniques we use in the bakery to knead and shape our loaves, and you will then make four different types of bread over the course of the day: a country loaf, ciabatta-style buns, seeded rye and bagels.
You'll go home with a take-home sourdough starter, wicker basket, recipe booklet, e5 dough scraper and freshly milled e5 flour and dark rye flour. You'll also 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 12 people. Please bring a large bag with you for carrying all your breads home.
