St Sidwell’s Community Centre is running autumn evening sourdough pizza and pitta-making courses at its Sidwell Street Bakehouse.
The courses include an introduction to sourdough dough and how to use it in baking.
Participants will make a pizza from the base up, with sauce and toppings, and will leave the session well-fed with pizza.
They will also take home a pack of pitta for their lunches.
The evening courses are intended to be relaxed, fun and a great place to start a bread-making journey.
Sidwell Street Bakehouse specialises in sourdough and other slow fermentation breads and treats made with stoneground organic flours.
It aims to make great quality bread more accessible to everyone in Exeter, and also offers a changing selection of cakes and savouries to take away each day.
It began in July 2019 in a micro-bakery housed in a converted office, where it trained volunteers in the craft of real bread-making while making sourdough loaves for sale.
At the end of 2020, with crowdfunding support from the community, it relocated to new premises in the old Halfords store on Sidwell Street, where it currently opens from 9am to 2pm Wednesday to Saturday.
Its bread is also available across the road at St Sidwell’s Community Centre, Exeter Farmers’ Market on Thursdays and on the menu at local cafes and restaurants.
The second autumn Sidwell Street Bakehouse sourdough pizza and pitta-making course is at 6-8.30pm on Thursday 17 November.
It costs £30 per person, with concessions available for those for whom cost would be a barrier to participation.
