  • Duration

    2 hours

    David Carter

Love real bread and enjoy baking? Join our demonstration evening and discover how to make your own sourdough bread with the expert guidance of David Carter.

David will share his tips and secrets to making, looking after and using a sourdough starter.

You will get to taste some freshly baked sourdough bread and also take away a portion of sourdough starter to practise your bread baking at home.

As part of the session we will also run a ‘sourdough clinic’ and invite you to bring your sourdough starters along for analysis and troubleshooting.

Having worked for 30 years as a solicitor, David had the opportunity to realise his love of baking when his wife bought him an artisan baking course as a birthday gift. He then changed his career and completed the Advanced Diploma in Artisan Baking. David has since become an invaluable member of the team at The School of Artisan Food working as a technical coordinator and associate baking tutor.

The School of Artisan Food is nestled in the heart of Sherwood Forest on The Welbeck Estate, Nottinghamshire, just a few minutes from the A1 and M1.
