Join us in the heart of Borough Market and experience artisan baking first hand with Bread Ahead & SOE Kitchen

This half-day workshop will explain the fundamentals of sourdough bread making and show you what makes wild yeast baking so special. You’ll create your own starter and then use ours to produce a brown levain and 100% rye and we’ll show you the process of a no-knead sourdough. This workshop is suitable for all levels of experience.

You’ll get to take home brodzinski rye bread, white levain, no-knead bread, sourdough starter plus a recipe booklet including top tips on where to purchase ingredients and Bread Ahead scrapers.

Allergen information: this course uses wheat, rye and sulphites. Unfortunately we aren’t able to tailor recipes for substitutions or alterations, as these can fundamentally change the composition and outcome of the recipes. For more information regarding our ingredients, please contact us before booking your course.

This event is presented by Studio Olafur Eliasson Kitchen and The Terrace Bar as a part of Olafur Eliasson: In real life.
