    I just got done with this class and I cannot recommend it enough!! If you’re looking to learn how to make and bake sourdough I HIGHLY recommend this class! Jess was so helpful, sweet and really insightful on the whole sourdough process. You even get to take home starter and dough! It was SO much fun! I can’t wait for more classes! 😊🥖

    I attended Jess’s awesome class 2 days ago. It was so informative, and most of all fun!
    I have always been intimidated by baking bread, and Jess broke all of the sour dough steps down, in a simplistic, organic and science based way.
    I feel so much more confident that I can bake bread after this wonderful class.
    Jess is a wonderful, sweet and joyful instructor. I am so grateful she is shared her skills, recipes and techniques with us.
    We took home our dough we made together in class and some sour dough starter.

    I highly recommend this class to anyone who wants to start making organic sour dough bread. I just baked my first loaf and it looks beautiful! We can hardly wait to cut into it!
    Jess also shared her organic tea’s with us and her sourdough crackers, both were amazing and delicious! Plus we were treated to a sour dough loaf that Jess made earlier in the day and it was delicious as well.
    Thank you so much Jess! ❤️

    Jess’s class was awesome! She is so knowledgeable and easy to understand for beginner bakers. She broke down all the steps and answered all my questions about working with the dough and taking care of the starter. The best is that I got to take some of the starter home and keep experimenting with it on my own. I learned so much from this class and I was so inspired to work on the skill of sourdough!

    Thank you Jess for this wonderful class! I’ve tried to make sourdough on my own and it is intimidating, and I failed. You helped me to understand the process! You make it make sense! Your passion is strong! I impressed myself with my first loaf 🙂

    I took Jess’s class in January and it was really fun and informative. She had it at her home bakery and it was super cozy and clean. She provided sourdough crackers, tea, water, and freshly made sourdough bread to snack on during class. I walked away feeling confident and excited to make my own bread at home. I highly recommended taking her beginners workshop!

    Jess is very enthusiastic and happy to have you. I learned a lot. I baked my bread today and it was beautiful.

    Jess’s “Sourdough for beginners workshop” was fun, interactive and informative. As an absolute beginner to sourdough, I have learnt several required skills and techniques for making a sourdough bread. The bread was made with good quality organic ingredients and turned out amazing. During the workshop we got to taste some freshly baked bread and sourdough discard crackers. I admire Jess’s passion for her work and highly recommend this class for all those who are interested in sourdough bread baking. Cheers!
