Straight from the bakeries of Paris, and now based in South Lakes, Wing Mon will take you through the process of creating and baking your own sourdough culture (aka starter) and bread in this three part course.

About this Workshop
Three Part Course

Learn how to make the best bread you can at home. Having recently moved from Paris to the South Lakes, Wing Mon leads this workshop which will teach you everything you need to make and bake your own sourdough culture and bread in the comfort and constraints of your very own kitchen. You might even learn a bit of French along the way!

The full course outline, including the equipment and ingredients you'll need are detailed below along with booking links:

Day 1:  Wednesday 17th February, 7.00pm
10 days ahead of Day 2, Wing Mon will lead a short introduction to making a sourdough starter. Taking you through the ingredients and equipment (see list of items needed below), after this short lesson, further instructions and support will be provided over email including a feeding schedule for your starter and instructions for building it on the Friday 26th February in preparation for the second part of the course on Saturday 27th February.
