Event Overview

Who doesn't love a good slice of sourdough bread with its characteristic flavor, chewy texture, and crispy crust? Sourdough is unique because it doesn't require commercial yeast to rise, and its long fermentation makes it more easily digestible for the body. But even the most experienced amateur bakers can be intimidated by sourdough starters, which is why we called in some professionals.

Ethan Pikas and Tony Bezsylko, chefs and owners of Cellar Door Provisions, will be teaching January's sourdough bread-baking workshop from their own kitchen! CDP is a community-focused bakery and cafe in Logan Square which uses simple, wholesome, and local ingredients.

Ethan and Tony will focus on cultivating a starter, mixing, fermenting, shaping and baking bread. They will have dough ready at various stages of the bread making process, and each stage will have a hands-on component. Bring pen and note pad to take notes. Each Dabbler will be able to sample bread with butter.

We hope you can join us!

    Whew! I now have a heartier appreciation for bread bakers, as it is such an involved process, but a beautiful one as well. This class was well-taught and Ethan and Tony really know their stuff and were able to demonstrate their passion for bread.

    What a great class! The guys at Cellar Door Provisions clearly have a passion for sourdough bread and have perfected the art and science of their craft. It was cool to be in their kitchen and do some of the hands on parts of the process. The final product was some of the BEST sourdough bread I had ever tasted! I'm excited to try out the starter they sent us home with. Long live Homestead Logan Square!
