The Latest Review
I attended the one day Introduction to Sourdough course in mid-October. It has taken me this long to write a review because I think I needed at least six weeks for the information and teaching to sink in. The day is full-on, particularly if you care about your baking and really want to learn. We heard about the history of wheat, sourdough and digestion, the science and chemistry of gluten and sourdough and so much more. On top of that was the bread making, shaping, creating and learning how to make a sourdough loaf from a passionate and knowledgeable teacher. The day inspired me to bake sourdough and look after my starter (which I had tried to do from books before without any success). I've baked eight loaves in the last six weeks and each loaf gets a bit better than tbe last one. And that is where the rest of the course kicks in - you get the Sourdough club and a facebook group full of supportive people and inspiring ideas and you get continued access to Vanessa's advice and support (which is priceless). If you love to bake and want to understand sourdough and learn about it, this is the best course you can do. I am already saving up for the intermediate course!
