On Tuesday, Andrew spent a fun couple of hours in Crich Junior School talking to the whole school about bread baking and in particular about the magic of sourdough. He then worked with one class to start their own sourdough leaven which they will be nurturing over the next week before Andrew makes a return visit next week to bake sourdough bread with the leaven they have made. The school have written up the visit and put it on their website with some pictures.
On Sunday we are baking for Derbyshire Day at Calke Abbey. As well as taking our usual range of sourdoughs and a couple of the new recipes (see below), Andrew will be there with some of his sourdough leaven to answer your sourdough bread baking questions and to give away leaven to the any home bakers interested in baking sourdough (while stocks last).
