Pain au Levain and Sourdough Secrets - Hands-on Workshop

Kitchen On Fire, Oakland, CA

Hands-on Workshop with a Master: Chef Michael Kalanty

The new Oakland Kitchen (on San Pablo just south of Ashby) is the perfect place to learn the secrets of Sourdough Bread baking!

Follow Chef step-by-step while making your own Pain Au Levain dough, the classic French sourdough bread. Chef will demonstrate how easy it is to convert his Master Formula into great-tasting variations like Apple Walnut or Golden Raisin Levain.

Learn the simple steps to keeping your natural yeast starter happy and thriving. See how easy it is to bake sourdough at home according to YOUR schedule, not the bread's.

Join us for this exciting experience, learn real skills for making fantastic artisan bread at home, and take home some of Chef’s 24-year old starter, too. Class running time: between 3 and 3-1/2 hours.

This is an intensive class on making the classic French sourdough, Pain au Levain. All steps and techniques will be shown and practiced in detail.
