Are you ready to start your sourdough adventure? | 01.31.2022

Who are these non-professional bakers and why should you listen to them? Well, Christine has had her head and hands immersed in fermentation crocks since 2014 and through a stroke of luck, Nicolas found himself between jobs for a year in 2016. The fermentation bug is easy to catch and as a Frenchman his love of bread already ran deep in his veins. The year of the bread was declared and Nicolas dedicated himself to research and trial and error, the result being a sourdough method that suits his lifestyle and palate.
In this class they will show you how to integrate sourdough bread into the average modern lifestyle. They will tell you what you really need to know, rather than confuse you with jargon. You’ll learn how to start your own starter and keep it happy and healthy, how to combine flours to achieve the density you like best and how to mix, shape, proof, score and bake your dough, of course.
We recommend, if at all possible, to have a cast iron cocotte ready for the baking of your loaf (which you will do at home).
Please also bring a receptacle for your dough as you will be proofing it at home (try to make some space for it in your fridge in advance). A banneton is ideal, but not mandatory, even a bowl would do.
All this learning brings on hunger so we will prepare some great vehicles for bread eating: 
- Vegetarian soup with Christine’s homemade miso
- Levain discard kimchi pancakes
- Sourdough Babka with miso ice-cream
| A welcome drink will be offered to you by Grillette, Domain de Cressier |

Nicolas Dusautoir:

Saying Nicolas is an engineer is an oversimplification of an epic scale, however, perhaps it was in a bid to counterbalance his precision skills that he immersed himself in the less predictable world of fermentation via sourdough bread. Hailing from Lille in the North of France, bread is his staple food of choice and now his own loaves surpass the breads of his childhood. As an ultramarathon runner and all-round outdoor enthusiast, his perseverance is one of his shining qualities. Thank goodness he applied it to bread, too.
