At the “Quest for Sourdough” workshop I attended last month in Vith, Belgium, a wonderful baker, Yohan Ferrant, explained the method of making bread that he, along with some other bakers and nutritionist were working on.  It was dubbed the “Do Nothing” bread by one of the attendees and it’s now all the rage.

Quest for Sourdough Workshop – Pt 1- Library


What a wonderful two days spent in St. Vith Belgium at the Puratos Center for Bread Flavour! A year ago Karl De Smedt asked me if I would like to visit the sourdough library in Belgium.

Getting Around in the Udemy Course & Downloading Resources

Hello everyone!

I am posting this tutorial because many of my students have written me about having trouble getting around in the Udemy interface or finding downloadable resources.

If you are having trouble getting around in the Udemy interface and need a little help, then you might find the following information helpful.

First you need to be in the lecture where the resources are available. In my courses go to any of the “formula” lectures and you will be able to follow the directions below: READ MORE »

Crumble Sourdough Biscuits – Scones


I just felt like whipping up something quick to go along with cold chicken for dinner. I thought biscuits/scones (I know in the UK biscuits are considered cookies)  would be a good idea. So I used up some sourdough starter that was spent (not active and sour). Here is what I did: READ MORE »

Buried Bread – A Sourdough Experiment

Buried Sourdough Bread

Many years ago, when I was working with and experimenting with Desem, I would bury the Desem dough ball in the bag of flour and then later dig it out and see that it had cracked open with the fermentation going on inside. I remember thinking about how nice the skin on the dough ball was. When it was buried in the flour, READ MORE »
