Cooking Sourdough Bread 10.15.20
with Bill Babb, Five Town CSD Adult & Community Education
There is nothing like the aroma of freshly baked sourdough bread unless it is enjoying a slice of freshly baked bread with butter shortly after coming out of the oven! Students will learn how to care for a sourdough starter, how to knead using two different techniques, and how to mix, shape and score the bread for baking. The instructor will demonstrate two ways to bake a loaf, using a cloche or a stone with steam in the oven, followed by a taste testing. Students will then shape, score and bake a loaf of their own in class. They will take home some sourdough culture (bring a 32 ounce container) for bread baking at home. A $5 ingredients fee is payable to the instructor at class.
