Whether you are new to the world of sourdough, or want to polish your finely-honed bread skills, this sourdough class is sure to take you to the next level! With sourdough lover & expert Abby Love, you will learn how to make rich, olive-oil enriched focaccia using wild sourdough starter (and just a hint of yeast) for any occasion. 

In addition to being delicious, sourdough focaccia is an excellent way to put your starter to use in this relatively no-fuss flatbread. With Abby's recipe for focaccia, you'll still get all the benefits of sourdough leavening (deepened flavor, enhanced nutrition, and beautifully open crumb) without the longer timeline and more intensive process of artisanal hearth breads. During class, Abby will teach you the basics of sourdough starters and their relationship with Barton Springs Mill stone-ground flours, and you'll use your new bread science knowledge to create deliciously dimpled, salty, olive-oil-y focaccia. You will leave class with your fresh bread, along with with a deeper understanding of how stone-milled flour elevates your sourdough game, including why Abby Love has chosen to center her bread practice around the freshest flour around.

This class is for all levels of bakers!

  • Have an opportunity to work with our own fresh flours, stone-ground right here at Barton Springs Mill
