Baking Sourdough
Making artisan French sourdough isn’t rocket science, but it helps to get hands-on experience. In this class, we’ll review strategies for using hydration (the amount of water in the dough) and temperature to help you create these crusty loaves in your home oven. We’ll also see how a basic dough can be used for a variety of finished loaves.
In this class, you will:
