Introduction To Sourdough

As some of you know, in 2018 I was lucky enough to attend the My Open Kitchen Gathering in Orange.  For me this trip was about taking in some new surrounds and meeting like-minded creative friends.  If anything more came out of the trip it would be a bonus.

Of course I met many new friends over the weekend including Amanda from Home Farm Cabin .  On our departure Amanda kindly drove me to the airport, a very welcome gesture as I was car-less and had two flights to catch to get home to my family that evening.

After the dust settled Amanda suggested that we collaborate on a bread making workshop as a trial for possible future workshops that she might host on her property.   Since then we have traded emails and details and lists and now it is actually happening.

On the 15th April, 2019 I will be sharing some of my bread making knowledge at an Introduction to Sourdough workshop to be held at Home Farm.   At this stage the workshop is fully booked but this is something that we may consider doing again in the future, so stay tuned.

Funnily enough, I haven’t actually baked much bread lately.  Now I am swinging into some practice batches while I think about how I am going to explain what I do to a room full of strangers.  Scary and exciting all at once.

Thank you Amanda for putting your faith in me, I am looking forward to launching into this floury venture.

I wont really be riding my bike all the way to Amanda’s kitchen but I have always liked the idea of putting some loaves into a bike basket, now seemed like a good time.

I hope you have some proper bread and butter in your kitchen this morning.

Wouldn’t you love to have bread delivered on a bike?

Happy Sunday, friends x

    How exciting Jane. I am sure that with your experience and love of bread making you’ll nail it! I love the bread in the basket photo. We were so excited when we actually saw people in paris riding around with baguettes in their baskets… it really does happen!!! xx

    Hello from Vancouver Canada. Your bread looks delicious! I hope you share your recipes for the sourdough. There is no road to here for your bike delivery and it would be fun to join in.

    Its absolutely too far to ride that lovely blue bike. However maybe you can borrow one (with a basket, of course, to hold the loaves of bread) and wearing your baker’s apron, pedal up the drive to the workshop.
    And yes, I do have proper bread -sourdough – and real butter and to top off the toast this morning, Vegemite!
    At the moment there is a Vegemite tram travelling around on one of our local tram routes…

    You’ll be great, I am sure. It’s something I’d like to learn, for sure, I fear though, with only two of us in the house, there’s not much call for baking loaves and loaves of sourdough – we could never eat a full loaf let alone many of them. It was much the same with kombucha. I made up great brews but there’s only so much of the stuff you can drink. I’d have to pack my bike basket and ferry loaves and bottles of fizz to all.

    We’re really looking forward to filling the homestead here at Home Farm with the glorious smell of freshly baked bread and the sound of laughter and conversation as we gather together to learn new skills in the kitchen. Thank you Jane for agreeing to share your wealth of knowledge and experience with us!

    Your loaves look delicious! I love bread making 🙂 I just pulled my sad looking starter out from the back shelf of the fridge for a feed in hopes I can bake this week, fingers crossed I can bring her back from the dead…
