OPEN!  April 27-28 - The Science Behind Sourdough, Karen Bornarth and Debra Wink, Jersey City, NJ

This science-based course, part lecture and part hands-on baking, is aimed at intermediate and advanced/professional bakers who are seeking a deeper understanding of sourdough systems. 

A student who took this class last year commented, "Each lecture, demonstration, and hands-on opportunity was planned and timed to allow us to see what was being done, ask questions, and expand our skills. It was a real joy to spend an entire weekend among people with a shared passion."
