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.
On this course you will learn how to bake a variety of traditional sourdough loaves, how to use and maintain your starter and what tools and equipment help to form the loaves. The course will conclude with a delicious lunch with wine and you take home some of your amazing bakes as well as a sourdough starter to get you going.
