Ali’s off for a well-deserved break in the sun this week, so we’ve got a bit of a throwback Friday guest slot this week.
Last September, in association with Master Stove Maker ESSE, River Cottage chef Tim Maddams hosted a sourdough bread-making masterclass in the Food Hall at Holmes Mill and we thought we’d share some of Tim’s top tips.
The former River Cottage head chef led a bit of a bake-off in which 15 amateurs rolled up their sleeves to take a deep dive into the subtle skills of crafting the perfect sourdough loaf by hand.
Tim’s top sourdough baking tips
Tim continues to teach, cook and consult on ethical food sourcing. His latest book: Game – the 15th in the River Cottage Handbooks series – is now available in bookshops.
Tim’s masterclass was one of a series of events taking place nationwide during ‘Sourdough September’ the Real Bread Campaign organized by Sustain to inspire people to bake their own bread or seek out quality artisan baking from local sources.< Back to the blog archive
