What Others Say
Gives very clear direction. I love the visual demonstrations of the window pane, poke test and visually helping me know if I'm doing right at home. While my first loaf wasn't perfect, it was definitely delicious! I can't wait to keep practicing and perfecting.
I am learning a lot. I have been baking bread for over 40 years, but have just in the last two years been exploring sourdough breads. WOW there is still a lot I can learn.
Merri Lea Hoff
I have been making what I will call "conventional" sourdough bread for years but this class has taken me to a new level in a matter of days! My bread has improved immeasurably in both look and taste.

Why the Focus on
Why do we focus on bread so much and on sourdough in particular? Bread is a staple and for good reason. Naturally risen or fermented bread is now known to be healthier than conventionally prepared baked goods. The naturally occurring bacteria and yeasts break down the carbs and sugars for us. The gluten is also somewhat modified and it is gentle on the digestion. The nutrients and vitamins become more available as the microbes do their job of fermenting the dough. Bread is one of the more intimidating culinary arts to master and includes a majority of professional baking skills. For these reasons, much of our learning material is based around traditional breads that will nourish and sustain you and your loved ones as well as boost your baking confidence in all areas.
