Whether you need a hands-on class, or you learn just fine with videos, we have the perfect option for YOU!
Maybe you don't have time for an all-day class, or want to learn in your own kitchen. Our online course is for you! With video and written instructions, you'll be making bread in no time!
The In-person Class takes place in our farmhouse kitchen in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee, about 1 1/2 hours south of Nashville, TN.
Yes! We're here for ongoing support! You'll be able to ask questions...
Yes! Though we won't be standing next to you telling you exactly what to do, we've tried to make the videos similar to our in-person class.
We'll also be happy to assess pictures or videos of your bread to troubleshoot problems.
Though hands-on learning is generally the best way to learn a skill like baking bread, our course is definitely the next best thing, and you'll be making amazing bread in no time!
Yes. We'll show you how to use a mixer and how to use your hands. Both are easy to learn!
Great question! We use freshly ground, whole grain flour.
Of course, you can use white flour to make sourdough bread.
Sweet Friend, I'm Darie Estill, and I LOVE bread! About 15 years ago, I started taking my family on a real-food journey. But there was a catch - I don't like food unless it tastes really good! My goal became to eat healthy food that was delicious.
I searched out how to make sourdough bread that's easy and tastes amazing. It took over 3 years and many loaves of dense, sour bread to get to where we are today and to be able to take others on an easier path than the one I traveled. I hope that you have far fewer bricks (or none at all) and many more delicious loaves!
Our Sourdough Simplified Bread Course is just that - A simple and easy way for you to bake sourdough bread right in your own home. You don't have to search for healthy bread you can eat anymore!
Every family should have sourdough bread on their table. It's a traditional, real food that people have eaten for millennia and for good reasons...
Caring for a starter isn't complicated! We'll show you everything you need to know about your bread starter, including sample schedules.
You'll learn our favorite recipes like sandwich loaves, cinnamon pastry loaves, tortillas, and more!
We'll show you how to knead by hand, with a mixer, and how to rise your bread evenly to get a complete ferment.
We'll teach you a few tricks that will assure a light texture and deeply flavored bread.
"As a volunteer chapter leader for the Weston A. Price Foundation, teaching others about how harmful nutrient-binding phytates found in legumes, nuts, seeds, and grains can be reduced by proper preparation like sprouting, soaking, or fermentation, I was thrilled to take Darie's sourdough class! Darie demystified the process with step-by-step, hands-on directions even I--who usually get confused with many steps to follow--was able to come away with the process under my belt enough to start baking sourdough bread. I would highly recommend Sourdough Bread Simplified, because I learned more than I ever imagined. I had read many books about making bread but just wasn't able to get the results I wanted. This class has given me the confidence to make excellent bread every time. "
"Through the years I had tried to make sourdough bread, only to find out we couldn't stomach it, either due to being too sour or too chewy and tough! I gave up! Along comes Darie's sourdough bread class. Hmmm...Was her bread really any better than what I had tried to make?? The taste/texture was amazing!! It had a delicious taste! The lessons learned were invaluable and couldn't all be put in book form. Some things you can only learn by walking along with someone as you follow the process. And now, we have sourdough breads of all types and enjoy all of them! We even make some to sell, with very happy customers!! It was definitely worth the time and money! "
"I had the best experience ever when I took a Sourdough Bread making class from Darie and Carolina. I was given the confidence I needed to make bread on my own. I had built it up in my head, that as much as I wanted to learn how to make my own bread, my experiences of making my own sourdough bread had always turned out bad. I was able to make it, and it tastes good! I definitely would take any class they would be teaching! "
