Sourdough seems like it shouldn’t be possible. There is no yeast. There’s a funny thing called a starter that requires watching. It’s complicated. Isn’t it?
Now there’s no need to fear flat bread! Learn the tricks to making great sourdough in “Making Sourdough Bread” from the Chesapeake Forum Tues., Oct. 4th 1-2:30 PM at the Easton Family YMCA on Peachblossom.
Instructors Jonathan Burbank and Barb Jarell start by explaining what a sourdough starter is, then proceed to make the dough using the starter, developing the dough by kneading it and letting it rise, then baking the dough. The basic principles and jargon of the sourdough world will be explained, as well as any tools that are necessary. Participants will also get a sample of the starter to take home to begin making their own bread. Yum!
Making Sourdough Bread will be in person at the Easton Family YMCA on Tues., Oct. 4th from 1-2:30 PM. $15. To register for this, or any other Chesapeake Forum course, visit https://chesapeakeforum.org
