Learn how to make your very own sourdough bread from just flour, water and salt with Peter Cooks Bread.

This hands-on workshop will remove the mystery behind the world of sourdough. We’ll explain the basic principles, leaving the complex jargon at the door.

You’ll learn how to make and look after your own starter with a lifetime guarantee.

We’ll then guide you through each step of the bread-making process. From kneading, to proving, to shaping, and of course baking. Including how to make your very own party centre-piece Focaccia. And while we’re at it, we’ll explain just what goes into your average ‘sourdough’ supermarket loaf. Be warned, you’ll never want to go back.

You’ll leave armed with a box full of your own sourdough bread, a pot of Peter Cooks Bread starter, and all the information and recipes you need to recreate your own sourdough bread at home.

The workshop takes place in our commercial bakery at the Hop Pocket, just a short drive from Ledbury and Malvern.

Refreshments and snacks will be provided throughout the day, along with a hearty lunch.

Maximum workshop size: 10
