ucculent, Scrumptious Sourdough!  Crackers, Cookies, Bread and More . . 
Sourdough is the oldest and most original form of leavened bread.  Nothing compares to the aroma of warm, freshly baked sourdough bread!  Sourdough does not use modern yeasts, but begins with a culture or starter of natural yeast and lactobacalli, a process of fermentation which breakdown the gluten and predigests the starches, making it more digestible and absolutely delicious.  This is a fun, hands-on class where you will learn all about maintaining a wild-yeast, naturally fermented starter.
