Discover the joys of baking with a sourdough starter culture with this workshop-style class. You will learn how versatile (and forgiving) this living organism is and how you can put it to work in your favorite bread recipe - gluten-free or not, you can use it in any baked goods and even for pastries! We will talk about sourdough alchemy & health benefits, see the different stages of a starter, learn when it's ripe and ready, and finally taste freshly baked slices of several varieties of sourdough bread. There will be plenty of time for discussion and questions, and every participant will go home with a starter culture for home baking. Heike Meyer is the owner of Brot Bakehouse School and Kitchen in Fairfax, a micro bakery and culinary school specializing in whole grain, naturally leavened breads and pastries www.brotbakery.com
