This class is intended to introduce or refresh students on the basic functions of using wild yeast to make naturally fermented, healthful and delicious food! We'll cover the basic functions of a sourdough starter, looking at how it works and how we might use it, and then scope the process of making sourdough bread– examining dough and starters at different stages, and sampling a bread made by the instructor. We'll learn about what makes a naturally leavened bread, take a look at a few traditional methods, and then make our own sourdough starter to take home, along with a set of recipes! Free and open to all. Registration required.
