The workshop was outstanding! Very engaging and thoughtfully presented. I learnt so much about technique as well as the history and politics of bread. Well worth attending!

So much more than a cooking class, this workshop is a history lesson, motivational seminar and cultural exchange all in one. Apart from learning all about wild, fermented sourdough, I also now know more about food sovereignty, the slow food movement and history of baking in Australia. I highly recommend this fun, interactive course run by someone who is very generous with their time and knowledge!
