Sourdough is the oldest form of leavened bread, likely to have originated in Ancient Egypt many thousands of years ago. That said, it can be tricky to produce consistently tasty, well risen, beautiful loaves that truly reflect the time and effort you’ve invested in baking them!! This class walks you through the stages of baking sourdough so you can perfect the Tartine-style country loaf.
