Join us this October for the 8th annual Austin Fermentation Festival hosted by Texas Farmers’ Market! The Austin Fermentation Festival is a FREE educational online event that celebrates all things fermented in Central Texas and this year we are bringing it back in a modified form.
In order to plan for a festive and safe event, we are mixing things up a bit and it will be different from its original format and spread across five fun-filled Monday nights on Zoom in October, each with a fermentation-focused workshop presented by a local leader in the industry from 7-8:30pm.
Workshop #4 - Variables in Sourdough Fermentation
By David Norman of Easy Tiger
As sourdough baking went viral in the beginning of the pandemic lockdown, Easy Tiger sold thousands of sourdough starter kits, countless pounds of flour and gave recipes and advice to many home bakers. They were not alone, as bakers across the world offered recipes, methods and tips for baking with sourdough. Because there are myriad ways to make and bake with sourdough starter and no definitive “right” way, David will present some key variables that a baker can manipulate to create different flavors in their sourdough bread and make it their own. There will be starter feeding demonstrations and tips on mixing and kneading the dough.
David Norman will also be on hand at the Easy Tiger booth at Texas Farmers’ Market at Mueller on Sunday, October 24th from 11am-1pm for a book signing and to answer your sourdough questions in person!
