Book now! Sourdough baking classes at Cookery School, London W1

I teach “hands-on” sourdough baking classes at Cookery School, Little Portland Street, London W1 several times a year, and the next class at which places are still available will be on Saturday 22nd November 2014 (sorry, my class on Thursday 9th October is already sold out!).

If you’re looking for the perfect gift for the sourdough baker in your life, or if you need to drop hints to your family about what you’d like for Christmas, my first class in 2015 will be on Saturday 24th January 2015 and Cookery School can provide a gift certificate if you request it when booking, so you’ve got something tangible to give.

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 problems you may be having with your sourdough baking.
