Sourdough bread is proofed with the aid of natural leavening agents, the microbes. The discovery and use of sourdough to leaven bread goes back to the time of the ancient Egyptians. This traditional baking method relies on the activity of both Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) and wild yeasts. Important characteristics to bake bread using sourdough and it’s health implications are addressed during the workshop.

Foreknowledge:Not required, more advanced bakers can use this workshop to ask specific questions about sourdough.
 Duration:About 3 hours

Circular Bakery & Food Waste

During the workshop, attention is also paid to food waste. According to the Dutch nutrition center, between 106 and 147 kg per person of food per year is thrown away in the Netherlands. Bread scores high on the list of food waste. We also demonstrate how you can reuse stale bread as a bread improver.
