The Event

“Bread makes itself, by your kindness, with your help, with imagination running through you, with dough under hand, you are bread-making itself, which is why breadmaking is so fulfilling and rewarding" - Edward Espe Brown, The Tassajara Bread Book.

"I’ll show you how to successfully bake your own delicious, nutritious loaves at home" Becca Dye, wholefood chef & baker.

This masterclass will include:

  • What is sourdough and how does it work?
  • Health benefits, costs, and how to choose your flour
  • How to create and maintain a sourdough starter, and fun ways to use excess levain
  • How to use bakers percentages and create and tweak your own formulas
  • Seeds, spices, soakers; working with flavoured doughs
  • Learn how to mix, fold, shape and bake a variety of doughs 
  • Q&A session, sourdough 101 and trouble-shooting
  • A delicious organic plant based lunch, your own starter, recipes and bread to take home 

Becca is a wholefood chef and baker, who has worked in top bakeries across Berlin and London, and currently bakes at social enterprise Better Health Bakery in Haggerston. Becca has a particular love for wholegrain baking, and utilising ancient varieties of wheat and freshly milled flour.
