#1 Sourdough Bread Baking 101

(Edited: Course Updated August 2019)

Tired of baking bricks when everyone else is baking super gorgeous sourdough bread with a holey crumb and crispy crust? Change all of that by enrolling in "Sourdough Bread Baking 101."

This is the sourdough baking course you need if you are just starting out in sourdough bread baking. In my other courses, I teach how to bake all sorts of sourdough breads, but in this course, I won't load you down with lots of information, just enough so it is easy and fun to bake your first loaf of sourdough.

You will first learn how to make your own sourdough starter at home, day by day with detailed instructions, videos and a free pdf downloadable booklet.

Next, you'll move onto baking waffles to test your new sourdough starter and then onto your first sourdough test loaf. Once you've taken a basic white sourdough loaf, steaming hot, out of your own oven, you will be ready to move on to more complex formulas.

There are two basic sourdough bread formulas in this course. I call them "First Loaf" and "Second Loaf." We will follow the easy step by step directions of the process together. The first loaf is easy. It is a one day round boule with a lower hydration dough, which means it is not too wet or sticky. The second loaf is a two day high hydration dough and is a batard or French style loaf.  Working together, I will show you how to handle a wet, sticky dough and how to do an autolyse. This bread results in a lovely tasting bread with large holes and a wonderful crispy crust.

This course is for I have fifteen years of experience teaching the newbie sourdough baker, so come on. Let's have some fun. You know want to.

This course would make an excellent gift for the aspiring baker in your family circle, whether an older baker or a young new baker.

Some skills you will learn:

  • How to make and care for your own sourdough starter

  • Why it's important to weigh ingredients.

  • Gathering some basic baking equipment

  • How to mix and fold dough. No kneading here.

  • Shaping, scoring and baking the dough.

  • What to do after you've baked your first loaf... hint (bake your second loaf. )

  • When you have finished Sourdough Bread Baking 101, you will have the confidence to not only bake using your own sourdough starter, you will be ready for more advanced sourdough baking techniques which will enable you to bake all sorts of sourdough artisan breads.

    I absolutely loved Teresa's Sourdough 101 class. Her directions were easy to follow, full of great info, and I was able to bake incredible sourdough bread. I loved it so much that I have already signed up for her other three courses. My family and I say "thank you Teresa".

    Can't get enough. I love Teresa Greenway's courses. She is so complete and does not just leave you hanging. She is there for you just like in a classroom and helps troubleshoot and encourage. Thank you so much I look forward to the future bakes and classes.

    by Simon H - Brilliant.

    I've checked out many sourdough baking texts and videos but then I discovered Teresa. Absolutely brilliant, not least, Teresa uses highly accurate gram measurements and not flippin' cups (what's more she explains why cups are an inaccurate measure). The course takes the student by the hand and slow, confidently and kindly walks through each step simply. There's no technical jargon and no assumption that the student knows this or that before setting out. The texts are clear, the videos are clear. This is without doubt the best sourdough bread making course I've ever seen. Thank you Teresa.

    by Jeni H - Absolutely fantastic.

    I have enjoyed this course so much, I'm baking my loafs right now. I found this course answered so many questions I had about making sourdough, I would highly recommend it to anyone starting out.

    This is another great course from Teresa. I have also completed two other sourdough courses of Teresa's and totally recommend them. If you are new to sourdough....start here and learn from a friendly and informative teacher. Teresa takes you through the process of sourdough baking and you learn at your own pace. Perfect place to start to enter the wonderful world of sourdough baking. A
