Hosted by Charlotte Street Foundation 

Project Space, 23 E 12th Street, KC MO 64106

Join me on April 1 for a introductory workshop and discussion about all things sourdough. You will learn how to create and maintain a sourdough starter to bake and cook with. What can be done with a starter goes beyond a basic loaf! I will delve into the science and history of sourdough, including the legend surrounding San Francisco sourdough and the eponymous souring bacteria Lactobacillus sanfranciscensis. I will also provide an overview of general food fermentation and how to use it as an everyday part of your kitchen repertoire. All levels of experience are welcome. 

BONUS: This workshop is intended to be a catalyst for you to create a starter and participate in my show, Lactobacillus Amongus, opening at Plug Projects May 19. For the show, I am aiming to collect a portion of all of the sourdough starters (young and old) in Kansas City. Participants will give me a bit of their starter (while keeping their original culture) to display in my sculptures at the gallery. The starters will be tended to throughout the exhibit and the participants will be asked to bake something with theirs for a public tasting at the end of the show. Please spread the word so I can find all the starters in KC! 

You do not need to bring anything special to the workshop.
