So many of our customers have been asking if we do baking classes… We are happy to announce that they are now part of our offering!

Dave has been busy over the winter months working on the content of this Making sourdough at home workshop. The focus here is to help people make their own sourdough bread at home.

For those of you who don’t know him, Dave is our head baker. He has a wealth of expertise, having worked in bakeries in Auckland, Melbourne and set up bakeries in Shanghai and Singapore.

His job at Bellbird involves helping our more junior bakers to master the art of sourdough making, and he’s always keen to share his passion and knowledge.

What’s in the class?

The class that Dave runs covers the whole process of making sourdough bread in your home kitchen, from starting and feeding your sourdough starter to scoring and baking your loaf. It is a very hands-on workshop where you’ll get the chance to ask all the questions you’ve ever had since your first attempt of home baking!

What people say

Here is a sample of what previous participants told Dave after the class:

So thrilled with my first loaf – Instructions were perfect Dave! – Denise

The “Making Sourdough at home” class is the only type we offer at present. However, we have ideas for more and are also open for suggestions. Keep your eyes open πŸ˜‰
