Pain au Levain (naturally leavened sourdough) - Ventura

April 17, 2020 06:00 PM until April 17, 2020 08:00 PM

This is one of our favorite courses. This class will teach each participant the chemistry and baking processes behind our naturally leavened sourdough. Our head baker Jarrett will explain how to make your own levain (starter), the natural process of slow fermentation, and how to maintain your own sourdough culture at home. Jarrett will also go into detail and answer questions about the techniques that Cafe Ficelle uses to maintain our incredible sourdough culture. Wine, cheese and charcuterie will be provided. Participants will be given their own levain to take home as well as a copy of instructions from the course. 

This class will be held at our Ventura location at 390 S Mills Rd.
