* New in 2021 : you can now do both a sourdough workshop and a farmhouse cheese and ferments workshop on the same weekend.
Have you ever wanted to learn how to make and bake your very own loaf of beautiful, health giving sourdough bread? Well have we got the workshop for you!
We limit our Sourdough workshop to ten lucky people so you get to actually make a loaf yourself, with your own sticky little fingers, from start to finish….and watch it grow and develop before your eyes!
Wendy will guide you through the process with lots of hands on practice and a complete set of notes to take home with you along with your own loaf to bake next morning.
And you get your very own starter/ mother / bread pet …whatever you want to call it. We call ours Princess Berta.
This is a full day workshop starting with a delicious morning tea on arrival at 10am for a 10.30 start and a generous lunch featuring goodies we make right here at Girragirra. Finishes around 3.30 pm
