About the Event
Sourdough Bread Like your Nonni made.
If you always wanted to learn to make sourdough bread like your grandparents but have been put off by recipes that measure things in grams and require a bread scale, this Sourdough Bread baking class is for you. You will learn the four steps I use to make a delicious sourdough loaf that require only about five minutes of the prep time on each of four different days (maybe 7 minutes each while you learn). Does that sound intriguing?
I will lead you step-by-step through each of the four steps talking about what I’m doing and why as I demonstrate each of the steps. You will have ample time to ask questions as we move through the process. I’ll share the secrets I learned and a couple of my own.
Here’s what you’ll need:
• A Medium-size mixing bowl (I use stainless steel or ceramic)
• A 1 quart jar
• A good stiff fork for stirring
• A medium-size spoon for ladling flour
Here’s what you’ll leave with:
• An active sourdough starter you mixed yourself
• An electronic copy of the recipe
• Links to videos that will help you through the process when you want to see one of the steps again
• The memory of tasting delicious warm Sourdough Bread with some of our favorite spreads in a place that might remind you of the old country
Steps we'll cover in class:
Day 1 feed the starter
Day 2 make the bread starter
Day 3 make the dough
Day 4 bake the bread
Class will be limited to 10 participants and we will follow the guidelines that Cabrillo is using: requiring all students to have a proof of vaccination and N95 or surgical masks are to be worn at all times while indoors (No valved masks, neck gaiters, or bandanas). If you forget yours, we will have surgical masks on-hand.
Members will need to log-on to their account to receive their discount.
