Sourdough September 2020

1st September 2020 to 30th September 2020

Bakers across the UK and Ireland are getting ready for the Sourdough September – a celebration of the floury fermentation goodness.

There are a squillion videos online to help you master the starter, ace the kneading and create your very own slice of heaven... here are some that the Sustainable Learning team have found particularly fabulous: 

Patrick Ryan of Firehouse Bakery gives us the lowdown on sourdough, from starter to finish - he's the best thing since sliced bread... 

Why you should never throw away your sourdough starter!
