Last week we learned how to make a sourdough starter. This week we put it to work and make our first sourdough boules. We have two options depending on whether you have a liquid or stiff starter. Both are delicious and you'll learn both as well as proper folding techniques to give your bread strength.
Don't have a sourdough starter? No worries. We will also do a version with dry yeast.
This class is online only and we'll make the bread together over Zoom video conferencing. The recipe is about 1.5-2 hours of active work and the rest of the time the dough rests or proofs.
I'll provide a live demo over video conference for each step!
9-10pm: Make the levain (preferment)
9:00am: Recipe overview
9:30am: Build the final dough
11:00am: Bulk fermentation starts (add levain and salt)

12:50pm: Fold the dough (this takes 5 minutes)

I'll send out the recipe at least a day in advance with exact measurements.
