About the Course

This event is a live, interactive webinar on ZOOM video conferencing. Learn in the comfort of your own home, go from beginner without any experience to expert in 3.5 hours, or your money back. No quibbles. No questions. No catches.

I'm Sharon Roberts, sourdough expert, author, chef and founder of Learn Sourdough.

On this highly acclaimed live ZOOM webinar, I explain step-by-step the entire process of how to create a powerful, high performance starter from start to infinity.

I explain more about ZOOM at the end of this page. We will be able to interact with each other in real time on ZOOM. Wherever you are in the world,

You need a powerful, high performance starter to make authentic sourdough bread.

This compelling workshop is in plain English.

'Let’s Start! Mastering Sourdough Starters’ has been created for you to succeed. I personally guarantee it.

You’ll create a sourdough starter during this ZOOM workshop and discover the science in plain English. All previous hitches and frustrations you may have encountered, will be resolved.

Everything you learn is based on science, in plain English and you’ll find it all in one place during this event.

There is nothing else like this incredible, interactive ZOOM event. It’s packed with everything you’ll ever need to know about sourdough starters.

This 3.5 hour ZOOM event is ideal if you want to start baking your own authentic sourdough bread but have zero experience or very little experience, love eating good food, want to eat better, if you've failed in your previous sourdough attempts, are producing frisbees (a technical term!) or just want to get cracking baking real bread.

You will master by ZOOM:
How to create a powerful, high performance starter from scratch, step by step, using proven scientific methods so that you succeed first time. You create a starter only once.  A starter is essential to make authentic sourdough bread.

How to troubleshoot a new or established starter confidently so that you don't bin it unnecessarily.

How to maintain a starter to pass on to the next generation (some starters are over 100 years old!) so that your children and grandchildren continue to bake sourdough bread, that's delicious and nutritious.

How to store a high-performance starter (you’ll learn all the techniques) so that the starter fits in with your life and not the other way round.

And become skilled at... 
How to spot dubious sourdough recipes so that you don't waste your time.

How to create your own fabulous sourdough recipes with ease, so that you can bake to suit your taste and your family's.

How to maintain and store small quantities of high-performance starter so your fridge isn’t overrun.

And get clued up about...
How much starter to use in your sourdough loaf and why, so that you don't end up with a claggy frisbee.

How to successfully refresh a neglected starter even if its been in your fridge, untouched for 1 year, so that you know you've mastered sourdough starters.

How to avoid 5 common mistakes when refreshing a starter so that it is powerful and will raise dough, every single time.

Suitable for all abilities. Including absolute beginners.

Read what they're saying:-

I've just done Sharon's "Let's Start! Mastering Sourdough Starters" session & can highly recommend it if, like me, you've had umpteen unsuccessful attempts at raising your own consistent & well-behaved "fridge pet" of the sourdough variety. She demystifies the whole process & explains the science behind it. You get to start your very own starter, and learn how to raise it, care for it, store it and revive it to peak activity when you need it. There are copious notes to take home, though it's worth also making your own as ideas & questions pop up. (Plus some very worthwhile vouchers for local & online shops and a dough scraper too.) Not to mention trying out her very excellent bread with a variety of intriguing toppings! All in all, a very interesting & worthwhile session. Angela Corbet, Wimborne, Dorset

Great session, loads of very good and useful information given in a very clear fun way . Easily understandable. Lovely free samples too. Well worth the money. Mandy da Silva, Wimborne, Dorset
