Bagel, Baguette and Donut

NEW CLASS

Vegetarian – organic butter and eggs used

bagelI am constantly amazed at the variety of bread we can do using pure sourdough, without the need to use yeast or baking powder. In this new class, we will explore three different types of sourdough goodies: authentic boiled bagels, ‘ancient’ French baguette, and the decadent DONUT and CHURROS!

Sourdough bagel is my absolute favourite sourdough, it is EASY! We will make plain, onion and sweet bagels (maybe blueberry or apple and raisin).

Using white sourdough starter, we will make ‘real’ sourdough baguette, the way French bakers used to make. You will learn the secret of baguette and how to shape and bake baguette at home.

To finish this class with a bang, we will make sourdough donut, a classic donut with cinammon sugar and a European chocolate ganache and American jam filled donut (of course, you can filled the donuts with custard)…

Hi Yoke,

I purchased on of your books recently, ‘wild sourdough by hand’.

I have to say this book is fantastic! I’ve been baking bread at home for the last 6 months or so and always with packet yeast. My bread has had some great reviews from family and friends, I’ve made some really nice rustic whole wheat, rye and spelt breads.

For a while now I’ve been wanting to try some sourdough bread. I had a couple failed attemps months ago which put me off. More recently I’ve been looking for a local bread course to help me along, I came across your website and of course your book.

I began making a rye starter as per your recipe. Its really cold in the Adelaide Hills this time of year, so the starter was VERY slow to get moving. I have no heating in my kitchen during the night so I decided to put my starter jar in a thick woolen sock and it came to bed with me to stay warm! Weird i know but it seemed to help! By the end of the week my jar was filled with a lovely, frothy, bubbly starter.

Thanks for your help so far, having an easy to follow starter recipe has been the biggest help.

Many thanks and with love, Tom (SA)

Note about my classes: All my classes are hands-on, as I truly believe that you learn more effectively by experiencing the whole process first hand...touching, feeling, smelling and making your own dough from scratch in class. All efforts are made to use only organic/bio-dynamic ingredients. If you have a specific allergy or dietary requirement, please let me know.
