Up & Coming Sourdough Courses
I am often asked for a basic sourdough recipe. I am in so many ways I am reluctant to give a sourdough recipe because a recipe in itself does not guarantee a good loaf. There are so many variables that affect a good sourdough bread, from the kind of flour, to the amount it is handled, to the weather on the day. These are things that I cannot account for in a recipe. Baking a beautiful loaf is about more than just the practical external factors. To make a
Sourdough recipes – the top 50 It is #sourdoughseptember and time to celebrate the harvest and baking for the year to come. One of the joys of baking sourdough bread is discovering other peoples recipes, the other is to bake them and share them. This is my top 50 collection of recipes from other sourdough bakers to inspire your sourdough baking.

The Latest Review
Faced with having to give up bread because of a gluten intolerance, little did I know when I went searching for a book on sourdough, that the book I chose would lead me down such an exciting path of exploration. ‘The Sourdough School’ is unlike any cookery book I had read before and I realised I was going to have to really sit down and study this one, rather than choose a recipe and start cooking. My husband was so entranced by my enthusiasm that he offered the 2 day Sourdough for Health to me as my 60th birthday present. I can only say that this was like no other cookery course I had been on. Right from the word go, Vanessa entranced us with her infectious enthusiasm for the world of sourdough and fermentation and how it could improve our health but also how enjoyable it could be. Our group gelled really quickly and I felt I had joined a community of like-minded passionate people. We ate the most beautiful food for lunch and Vanessa’s generosity with her recipes and experience knows no bounds and the two days sped past. The course did not end on Sunday evening as we also have access to a detailed website with background research, detailed ‘how to’ pages and recipes. I cannot thank Vanessa enough for starting me on my sourdough journey and for her passion to share sourdough with everyone.
