Breaking down the basic components of the natural leavening (aka wild yeast or sourdough) process. Working with freshly stone milled whole grain flour to mix, shape, and bake a personalized loaf of focaccia. Learn to ‘read’ the dough, combining intuition with a few industry tricks. We will have a few toppings/mix-ins such as sautéed onions, herbs, cherry tomatoes etc. to hold you down, but we encourage you to get creative and bring a little of any other ingredients that float your boat! See what you have kicking around at home, perhaps olives, cheeses, pesto, sausage, cured meats, roasted veg, anchovies, or tasty seeds? Perhaps even edible flowers if you’re feeling like doing it for the gram! (ugh- I hate that I just said that.)
