In part one of this two-part series, we’ll show you how to make your own sourdough starter so you have the base for baking everything from loaves of bread to pancakes and pizza.

Part One Overview:

You will learn how to make your starter, turn it into a dough, and then how to bake it. We’ll cover all aspects of troubleshooting, how best to use your home oven to make bakery level bread and how to improve on each loaf you bake.

We’ll show you exactly what an active starter should look like, what the texture of your dough will be when you handle it and what you should be experiencing each step of the way.

Sourdough is simple once you have the knack, all you need is flour, water and salt, we can help you gain this life-changing skill. Baking your own is also extremely budget friendly.
