I have always been interested in sourdough but never given it a go myself. I didn't know what to expect from this course but I got so much more out of it than I could have expected. I loved every bit of it! This is an amazing course with an amazing teacher who has so much knowledge and is willing to go above and beyond to help her students achieve results.
