Beginners Sourdough with Sue Hudson
May 11 @ 10:30 am - 3:30 pm| £110
The king of bread, sourdough is sometimes a difficult skill to master but with the instruction from Sue you are sure of success and confidence to carry on baking sourdough. Take some dough home to prove overnight ready for a late breakfast, make two loaves from scratch and learn to make and keep your own “starter” for the next time.
Sue Hudson has been teaching the skill of making bread by hand for many years, as a farmer and general “foodie” Sue became interested in bread soon recognising this could be much improved on by using old-fashioned techniques and simple ingredients, thus avoiding the “factory” breads commonly sold in supermarkets and shops.
She passes on her enthusiasm for making bread by teaching this skill to small groups in her bread workshops. Today, using ingredients and equipment which most people already have in their own kitchens, under Sue’s instruction you will have the opportunity to make bread and learn the techniques for kneading, shaping and scoring the dough. Fun, lighthearted and hands-on you will have a great experience and take home something wonderful, as well as a new skill.
Bread Workshops are hands-on and informal, Sue guides you through each recipe with encouragement and instruction, drawing on her experience to ensure you have an enjoyable day, learn a new skill, useful tips, recipes and the confidence to continue baking bread at home.
The day will include a fabulous lunch, accompanied with wine and there will be snacks and refreshments available throughout the day.
