Sourdough Bread Making Workshop Using Wild Yeast

Sourdough bread making is an ancient craft that is simple to learn. Join Karen Hirsch, owner of Apron Strings Community Bake Shop, at this hands-on workshop and learn how to make wild-yeast sourdough breads. You’ll learn and practice each stage of baking a naturally leavened organic loaf, from caring for a starter through shaping and baking. During our time together, we’ll enjoy warm, fresh bread, stories and Karen will share some of the science behind this miraculous daily loaf.

TAKE HOME: You’ll leave with your own sourdough starter, recipe and guide, a dough scraper, and your own ready-for-the oven dough. 

BRING: Please bring a metal or glass bowl to transport home afterwards. If you have a long drive, you may also wish to bring a cooler in which to carry the dough.

Instructor Bio:  Karen is the owner of Apron Strings Community Bake Shop, a cottage food bakery in northwest Pasadena dedicated to the spirit of countless generations of grandmothers who showed love by filling their tables with fresh baked breads and cookies. Karen developed her passion for organic, wholesome baked goods during her time training new teachers at a Los Angeles non-profit organization and began Apron Strings at the same time, supplying local cafes with fresh cookies and cakes. With a background in dance, theatre, and middle school education, Karen believes storytelling and humor are essential ingredients for everything from cakes to classrooms. The elemental aspect of sourdough baking (just flour, water, and salt) has been an exciting journey into history, science, and community, and Karen loves sharing the knowledge and techniques that are part of this most basic of foods.
