Learn to bake SOURDOUGH bread with Jeremy Cherfas – Sunday November 17

Join master baker and sourdough nut Jeremy Cherfas for an all day baking workshop.

Along with taking participants through the basics of baking bread with a natural leaven, everyone in this all day class will take home a piece of starter with which to continue their sourdough journey.  And not just any starter!  Jeremy has a much loved Tuscan starter – that he has fed and baked with for over ten years – that is over a hundred years old.  Is there anything particularly Tuscan about it?  Perhaps not, but it is ready to make delicious, flavorful and nutritious bread.

Jeremy will pass on the knowledge surrounding keeping, and using your new (old) starter to make sourdough bread of various types.
There will be a fresh lunch of seasonal produce with wine and detailed notes to take home along with the starter.

Email Jeremy on jcherfas@gmail.com for more info.

Dumplings are back! Thursday 26 September

Vanessa Miles, the Australian cook, photographer and teacher known as ‘the hungry chook’, is back at latteria studio for the fourth year in a row.  In this hands on class Vanessa will have you rolling and filling delicious pork and mushroom dumplings, and share the tricks to grilling them ‘potsticker’ style. This is a simple evening class which finishes with dinner around latteria studio’s long table, with seasonal Asian vegetable dishes and wine.
