This is a sourdough loaf from one of my classes at Cookery School in central London… see below, or go to the Cookery School website for details of how to book your place at the next one…
I teach “hands-on” sourdough baking classes at Cookery School, Little Portland Street, London W1 several times a year – classes are usually sold-out, but there may still be a place remaining at the next one on Saturday 8th August 2015, if you’d like to be there.
If you’re looking for the perfect gift for the sourdough baker in your life (or if you’re dropping hints to your family about what you might like for your next birthday), Cookery School can send you a gift certificate when you book, so you’ll have something tangible to give to the happy recipient.
If you can’t make it in August, the remaining dates booked for 2015 are:
Thursday 8th October
Saturday 21st November
and then the first 2016 class will be:
Saturday 30th January 2016 – makes an ideal Christmas gift, if you’re planning ahead!
Classes start at 9.00am sharp, and run till approximately 4.30pm, and cover all the stages from making and keeping a healthy leaven through to the finished loaves coming out of the oven. We’ll look at different aspects of sourdough baking, and how best to use your leaven at home, and work together on how to create that perfect result. There is also time to talk about your own baking with me, either over the traditional Cookery School lunch, or at the end of the day, and to tackle any sourdough problems you may be having.
These classes are equally suitable for a passionate beginner or for someone with some experience of sourdough baking who wants to refine and develop their skills, and we try to provide a fairly full day of practical baking tuition. (more…)
