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 usually sell-out, but there are still places remaining at the next one on Saturday 21st November, if you’d like to be there. If you can’t make that date, the first 2016 class will be:
Saturday 30th January 2016 – makes an ideal Christmas gift, if you’re planning ahead!
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), Cookery School can send a gift certificate when you book, so you’ll have something tangible to give to the happy recipient.
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…)
