Some of the reviews from my first sourdough baking course:
Teresa is the Sourdough Bread Whisperer...I was resistant to making it myself because it seemed so daunting. But Teresa is so calm and skilled that it eased my fear and allowed me to jump in whole heartedly. She is a natural teacher. The course is easy to follow and filled with so many useful tips. And the best part is that the bread is so wonderfully good. Best sourdough bread I have ever tasted, seriously!
This course and instructor are heaven sent....
Best Class Ever; from starting your sourdough starter to making the best breads, this course is worth it.
In my opinion, Teresa has earned 10 Stars. She's taken me from burnt hockey pucks to beautiful loves of bread that are in great demand by family and friends.
I loved it that everything is shown and discussed in a very clear manner.
