    Excellent 1st class from Andy, he made it very easy to follow the steps on starting the sour dough starter and I'm looking forward to the next step.

    I booked this class as a bit of me-time, time out from trying to combine full-time work and home schooling a 7 and a 9 year old. It was a real tonic! Andy made the experience really enjoyable and informative yet simple. I am currently feeding my sourdough starter every day in preparation for next week’s lesson and can’t wait to learn more skills that will enable me to produce my own sourdough on a regular basis. Great job Andy and Larks Live!

    Well, I have done all 5 clinics and I can truly say that the last was as good as the first. Understanding different ways to present and bake your loaves was fascinating. I even tried out decorating the loaf I made straight after the session! I would recommend these classes to anyone who has an interest in sourdough bread making. Many thanks Andy.

    The session on Shaping was very helpful and I found it totally absorbing. The practical hints and tips as well as seeing so many methods to deploy should have a positive impact on my sourdough making.

    Another fascinating class. I am looking forward to trying out some different ways of proving the dough. I have 2 leavens ready and we will see what happens!

    Fascinating insight into how to get started with sourdough making. The practical advice combined with an overview of the science should give the basis for making some great bread. Really looking forward to the next class!
