The workshop was challenging and a privilege in which to participate. The presenter was very generous in sharing his experience and knowledge and I left confident to be able to start using and sharing the process of starting up and maintaining my own “mother” or sour dough starter and baking healthy tasty bread with high quality ingredients using age-old baking processes. I learned a lot about the history behind bread making. An exceptional experience!

We were looked after very very well, had an amazing lunch, coffees and Al was an amazing super informative teacher! would definitely recommend this course to anyone who has an Interest in Sourdough or bread making in general. A+++

I thought I was getting there with my own starter already begun and a few failed test loaves. With what I learned I think I can now see why I haven't succeeded so far and the knowledge I gained from the course will take me forward to success. I learned crucial skills I think will lead to good loaves once I consume the 8/9 loaves I took home !! Laurie
