Learn to make your own Sourdough Bread at Homestead Junction, 649 E. Hastings St. The teacher recommends taking both “Getting to Know Sourdough Starter” and “No-Knead Sourdough Bread Tartine Style” workshops together on the same day, March 19, 2017, 10am-11:30am and 1pm-3:30pm.
Getting To Know Sourdough Starter
Sun, March 19, 2017 from 10-11:30am
Interested in baking sourdough bread, but unsure of how best to approach it?
Daunted by the task of keeping a starter alive?
Want to learn more about the benefits of sourdough?
Maintaining a sourdough starter does not have to be a complicated or intimidating task. It can be flexible, predictable, and very rewarding. In this introductory class you will learn how to keep a starter, different ways to use it, and about the health benefits of sourdough. Tamiae will share some of the methods she has adopted over the years of integrating sourdough baking into her life; she will offer hints and lots of encouragement to help you begin down the path of healthful grains!
If you book this workshop together with the No-Knead Sourdough – Tartine Style happening on the same day, you will receive a $5 voucher for the store. The gift card can be used for future workshops, too.
After three years of living the good life as a market gardener at Linnaea Farm on Cortes Island, Tamiae Squibb has recently returned to her hometown of Vancouver. She may not know much, but she does know a thing or two about growing organic, nutrient-dense food with her two small hands. She also bakes a whole lot of bread, and is always excited about anything having to do with real food. With the experience she has gained over the years, Tamiae is eager to share everything she’s got, from her experiences living as a farmer to a wholesome, home-cooked meal.
No-Knead Sourdough – Tartine Style
Sun, March 19, 2017 from 1 – 3:30PM
Although a lengthier process than baking bread with yeast, a no-knead loaf is a thing of beauty – and nutrient rich, too! Learn the basics of creating these artisan breads with their well-developed crusts and open, flavourful crumb. This hands-on workshop includes detailed handouts, a ready-to-take-home-and-bake demi-loaf, and of course fresh bread to taste! Please bring a tea towel and loaf pan (or a small cereal-sized bowl) to transport your unbaked loaf. Gluten intolerances cannot be accommodated and an understanding of sourdough starter maintenance is helpful.
