Sourdough Workshop - with Karl's Bakehouse
Join the Fermented Community's Sourdough Workshop with Karl's Bakehouse
Who is Karl?
Karl Tessendorf is a writer, recipe developer, baker and one half of the brand, Beer Country (@BeerCountrySA). He fell in love with bread baking 4 years ago and he’s been baking almost every week since.
What you can expect:
Guests will arrive at Karl’s house in Table View for a full day of sourdough baking. Guests will work in teams of 2 over the course of the day and each team will produce two loaves of sourdough bread that they can take home. A light lunch of sourdough, charcuterie and cheeses will be served. The workshop will take place outdoors (weather permitting) and the bread will be baked in 2 dedicated ovens. The course is geared towards the home baker and is packed with valuable tips and tricks learnt through years of trial and error.
