The workshop:
Learn more about the underlying science and how to use your senses to improve the sourdough fermentation process. In this more advanced bread workshop we tap deeper into the science of fermentation and the way our senses perceive fermentation flavours. Understanding key concepts related to fermentation allows bakers to tweak recipes and methods and build a more meaningful and creative baking narrative.

For whom?
This workshop is suitable for people who have experience baking sourdough bread and are interested in learning more about the underlying acidification principles. We always discuss a sourdough experiment in the workshop and try to explain the results with the accompanying theory. We give a number of practical tips to better control the sourdough process at home.

The workshop is NOT suitable for people who want to see step by step how to make sourdough bread. Check other workshops options.

Important note
Our courses provide more insight into key concepts related to the baking process and encourage students to use their senses to learn how to develop their own recipes, instead of repeating those from others.
