Come learn the fundamentals of artisan sourdough breads. Home bakers and professionals of any level are welcome. There is so much to learn!
with James Beard nominee, Jonathan Stevens from Hungry Ghost Breads.
In this 4-hour workshop, we will be mixing, shaping, baking
and breaking bread together. We will discuss: wheat varieties, milling, nutritional necessity of natural fermentation, how to listen to dough, baker's percentages, professional formulas and more!
We will sample wonderful breads from Hungry Ghost Bread, enjoy a light lunch as well as be entertained by poems and songs from Jonathan’s cd “Bread and Butter Songs.”
Jonathan has over 20 years of experience and is the co-owner of Hungry Ghost Bread in Northampton, MA where they specialize in old-world artisan breads, made from organically grown grains, leavened with sourdough starters, shaped by hand and baked in small batches in a wood-fired brick oven.
