Workshops and Events
I love to bake sourdough bread. The alchemy of flour, water, salt and wild yeasts represent to me the quiet beauty and power of simplicity. I find the art and science of sourdough fermentation therapeutic and inspiring, and I find the smell of freshly baked bread soothing to my soul.
My sourdough workshops are designed to bring people together to learn, create and to celebrate. Each workshop is intimate and personal, and an exploration into the transformative alchemy of the fermentation process. I hope my workshops will inspire you to bake nourishing and wholesome bread for yourselves and your families, and to understand the benefits of sourdough fermentation and digestibility.

Longbush Wines -19 Solander Street

My handcrafted sourdough breads will be matched with award winning Waimata Cheese and Longbush wine, in combination with a workshop presentation detailing the basic principles of the sourdough fermentation process, and sourdough starter maintenance. Each guest will receive a sourdough starter to take home, to enable them to begin their own exciting and life giving venture into sourdough bread making.
We invite you to come and sit at our table, as we celebrate and explore the symmetry of these three fermentation processes, and the sensual pleasure and simple nourishment they bring to our lives.

F.A.W.C! Food and Wine Classic is the hottest festival on New Zealand’s culinary calendar.
