I was so busy getting my new course ready and working on my new site (https://thebakingnetwork.com) that I forgot to even do a post on the new course!
My new online baking course, “Bake San Francisco Sourdough Bread,” was the most fun of any of my courses to produce. It was really the culmination of years of learning about methods for sourdough baking. Like many of you I tried over the years to find a method that would give me a consistent “sour” tang in my San Francisco style loaves. I did have some moderate success but wasn’t really happy about how hard it still was to get a good consistent deep sour when I wanted it.Continue reading
Yea, I know, I know, walking where? How do you walk sourdough? Well I just needed a name for my bread and I was going on a walk so that’s what I named it. I should have called it “Quick get some dough ready, we’re out of bread.”
I fed my starter in the morning, was out of bread, wouldn’t be able to bake early the next day, but wanted to start some dough that I could bake as soon as I could get to it. So I made up this dough:Continue reading
Hello everyone! I’ve finally finished my #10th online sourdough bread baking course which is called, “More Fun With Sourdough Bread Baking.” It took me 10 months! I had several obstacles this past year which made it difficult to finish the course. I moved. Yay, I moved! It’s wonderful being in my new place but moving is also stressful and most of all, you can’t find ANYTHING! 🙂
This is the downstairs garage “kitchen” where I used to live:Continue reading
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. I answered that I would love to visit someday. His reply was intriguing, “Well, we’ll have to see if we can make that happen.”
He made it happen.Continue reading
Hi everyone! We are having a challenge in our group on Facebook called, “Perfect Sourdough.” The challenge is to score a loaf to look like a sunflower, some 3d scoring fun. So I made up a variation of the Alaska Sourdough bread and had a super lot of fun scoring the loaves. Here is how I did it:Continue reading

This is the second post in a series where I put together some collections of Sourdough Baking Technique videos. This post will cover Baking Equipment Ideas. I thought it would be a good idea to have a list of videos and resources in one post so that you can bookmark it or share it with a new baker. However, one post would be too long, so I am breaking it up into three posts. Continue reading
