Up & Coming Sourdough Courses

The Latest Review
A Fantastic course, very relaxed but interesting all day. Vanessa is welcoming, funny and incredibly knowledgeable not just about bread but about the science behind the making and eating of it. I was very interested in what she had to say about gut health and digestibility of sourdough as one of the reasons I was given the present was to bake bread for my wife who has a lot of food intolerances. A great day out and a great experience; lunch was fabulous and I took home 3 loaves of proper sourdough! I made my first loaf at home last week and I have now bought all the kit and ordered more flour etc to keep me going. plus Vanessa's new book "The Sourdough School" is arriving today, I cant wait !!
