What if I can’t join the class live?

It is best if you can join live as you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions as we make and shape the dough.

However, if you cannot make any of the available dates, you can still sign up for the class and receive a recording of the key steps to making your own starter and baking a sourdough loaf at home.

How much is the class?

The class is £27 per person.

Once signed up, full details and a recipe will be sent within 10 days of the class starting.

What will you need to take part in the class?

You’ll need an active rye flour sourdough starter. The class includes a step-by-step video guide to making your own starter. Please note that this process takes four to five days, with just a 10-minute step to complete each day.

You’ll also need the ingredients for a crusty white sourdough loaf – strong white bread flour, salt and water.

You’ll also need basic kitchen equipment including weighing scales, bowls, oven, a loaf tin and a proving basket if possible.

Just had a lovely online baking session with Rhiannon, learning to bake cinnamon rolls. Her communication from the start was clear. She made us all feel at ease and ran the session seamlessly. A great way to learn some new skills in the middle of lockdown!
