No-Knead Sourdough Bread

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.

Homemade Yogurt

Making your own yogurt at home is not only less expensive than buying it from the store, but far more nutritious and very rewarding. Like many types of fermentation it requires specific cultures, specific conditions and a certain amount of care. This workshop lays it all out: you will go home with some culture to get you started; resources and instructions to help you along the way; and more importantly, you will leave with excitement and confidence about making your own yogurt. It is so much easier than you think!
