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 – the January class was completely sold-out, but there are still a few places remaining at the next one on Saturday 21 March 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 March, the other dates booked for 2015 are:
Saturday 16 May
Saturday 08 August
Thursday 08 October
Saturday 21 November
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…)
