For new bakers, sourdough can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be.
Working with sourdough can be a tricky skill to master, but with the help of my fabulous baking course you’ll be baking  with all the skills you knead to get the perfect loaf every time.
Baking shouldn’t have to be an expensive hobby, nor a strict ruled cult!  For new hands it’s a tough ask finding a low-cost / low-pressure course to get the dough rolling. Not, however, impossible, the course is dedicated to introducing good people to good food or even  better,  about introducing them to how to make it themselves.
This course program is pretty all-encompassing and will shows just how much there is to learn about the seemingly simple world of flour, water, and heat.
Whether you’re completely new to sourdough, or want to learn my “easy going” method for developing Mother Dough and baking amazing sourdough bread, I’ll be guiding you from choosing the right ingredients through to kneading and shaping the dough, to getting the right results in the oven.
With a few essential basics, you’ll be baking crusty and healthy loaves of bread in short order!

During the course also you will see step by step how to make an amazing Italian-style Focaccia and the Iconic Country-style Bread Loaf with two different recipes!

And if you get stuck? I’m almost always lurking around here, answering questions and providing help — just leave a comment, and I’ll get back to you.
