Cat Shimizu, the "breaducator" from Sour Flour--a Mission District dedicated to neighborly bread gifting and bread education--will talk about the art and science of making bread using a sourdough starter. This includes how to feed and take care of your own starter, and how different factors such as time, temperature, and starter hydration affect the fermentation process. Samples and suggested reading will help get you started on the fun, healthy, and delicious new adventure in baking.
