Summer Bread Camp

August 23rd - 25th 2017

Are you looking to deepen your understanding of naturally leavened bread? Curious about wood fired ovens? Love bagels? Join us for an adventure in wood fired baking covering naturally leavened bread, pizza and handmade bagels. 

Sourdough baking falls somewhere between a hard science and a high art, we’ll focus on both aspects while approaching baking as a form of personal expression. How to work with freshly milled flour, properly hydrate dough and build in strength will be addressed along with the basic science behind fermentation. We’ll also dive into the anatomy of wheat, a brief introduction to various grains, milling styles and the workings of a wood fired oven.

Expect hands on learning in a relaxed environment. Great for first time bakers, home bakers or professionals looking to for something different. Each participant will walk away with a batch of Smoke Signals sourdough starter, a bread stencil, 4 loaves of naturally leavened, wood-fired bread and an assortment of bagels. Lunch and a glass of wine included each day.
