SOURDOUGH 101
 

Gather 'round as we knead, stretch, fold and proof our way to beautiful, naturally leavened loaves. You'll come into class and shape two loaves of bread using dough our chef has prepared; one boule and one pan loaf. Once nestled in proofing baskets and loaf pans to rise, we will gather to learn about the science of wild yeast, gluten and explore the rainbow of flavors and textures of different varieties of heirloom grains milled in Pasadena at Grist & Toll ! You'll taste Spelt, Rye, Hard Reds and Whites and Sonora wheats before choosing your favorites to make your own bread dough.

Following a quick break, you'll feed a sourdough starter and prepare a levain, then mix the dough you'll take home to bake your own loaves after class. Once the loaves you shaped are fully proofed, we'll learn to expertly slash and bake them and, while they're busy baking away in the ovens, we will make a batch of jam and churn some butter with the loveliest cream from our friends at Straus.

SOURDOUGH 101
 

Gather 'round as we knead, stretch, fold and proof our way to beautiful, naturally leavened loaves. You'll come into class and shape two loaves of bread using dough our chef has prepared; one boule and one pan loaf. Once nestled in proofing baskets and loaf pans to rise, we will gather to learn about the science of wild yeast, gluten and explore the rainbow of flavors and textures of different varieties of heirloom grains milled in Pasadena at Grist & Toll ! You'll taste Spelt, Rye, Hard Reds and Whites and Sonora wheats before choosing your favorites to make your own bread dough.

Following a quick break, you'll feed a sourdough starter and prepare a levain, then mix the dough you'll take home to bake your own loaves after class. Once the loaves you shaped are fully proofed, we'll learn to expertly slash and bake them and, while they're busy baking away in the ovens, we will make a batch of jam and churn some butter with the loveliest cream from our friends at Straus.

Please bring one large bowl to class, a jar for your starter and a large paper bag to carry your loaves home with! Stone-milled flours from Grist & Toll are available for purchase in our storefront for all your bread-making dreams.

LEARN THE SCIENCE BEHIND:
Wild yeast
Fermentation
Hydration and Extraction
Milling and history of wheat cultivation
