In this introduction to sourdough bread-making, Chef Carignan will demonstrate the fundamentals of making sourdough bread in your home kitchen. Participants will learn the chemistry and process of creating and maintaining a starter, using it to leaven a loaf, and shaping and baking the loaf. Participants will also learn some sourdough history, and bring home a jar of starter with instructions to use it, along with a hunk of sourdough bread. We’ll also enjoy finished bread in class, served with a variety of bruschetta-style toppings from local produce, that students will also learn to make. Lunch will be seasonal soup served with local wine.
We’ll be sharing the Reserve’s stories at this lunchtime meet-up. Bring your sandwich and join us!
