If you’re like us, winter is starting to take its toll. We’re taking vitamin D drops, hitting the ski slopes to keep the endorphin levels up and anticipating the arrival of Spring. And of course, the arrival of daffodils is like a tonic for the soul as it means the days are getting longer and the winter solstice has been and gone.
Now is the time to plan for a Spring break to enjoy Beechworth and some of the great local happenings.

Sourdough Bread Making Workshop
Louise Ritchie of Silver Creek Sourdough, Beechworth, is a self-taught baker who knows from first-hand experience how much difference a day of hands-on learning can make to your bake. Bring along your starter culture, a dough and one of your cooked loaves and Louise will answer all your questions on the day.
You will also be taught how to create your own sourdough recipe for the style of loaf that you would like to serve at your table. You will be taught how to manipulate any style of dough, stiff or well hydrated and how to work with different flours, including wholegrain stoneground flours.
The Sourdough Master Class is designed for experienced home bakers who are striving to make that perfect loaf.
