Sourdough Surgery

If you thought producing a sourdough starter was the secret of a sourdough loaf, let me tell you, that’s just the start of it. As a reasonable bread-maker the conventional way, I have been struggling, for the past few weeks, to produce a half decent sourdough loaf. So I was intrigued to hear about the Sourdough Surgery being run by the School of Artisan Food on 1st March 6.30-8.30pm and for just £10. It’s part of Real Bread Week (24 Feb-4 March) and is being run by David Carter, who worked for 30 years as a solicitor before giving it all up to become a baker and now works as a tutor at the school of Artisan Food.

Why I’m struggling to make my own when York where I live has the superb Haxby and Bluebird Bakeries along with others around the county. You can find out all about real bread and find a baker near you by searching the Real Bread Campaign
