Multipurpose Sourdough Virtual Workshop 


We invite you to welcome sourdough into your daily routine, and rethink perfect. This class will help you have fun exploring your creativity in the kitchen.

The workshop will be presented in demonstration style, with Ellie walking you through developing the sourdough for use, preparing the dough and then demonstrating various uses for that same dough. If you plan to have your starter active and ready, you are welcome to bake alone, but Eillie will be demonstrating numerous uses for the multipurpose dough. Feel free to sit back, relax and enjoy learning more about sourdough or create something along the way. If you have questions we ask that you write them in the “chat” section of Zoom. Amy or Ellie will answer the questions with the flow of the workshop.



Ellie Markovitch founder of #storycooking and Amy Halloran of @flourambassador will guide you through everyday cooking , that for Ellie, is mostly improvisation. To facilitate this, she keeps a stocked pantry, full of ingredients for “the base” and the “toppings.” Bases are grains and dough. For toppings, Ellie makes use of vegetables, fruits, protein, spices, herbs, etc. A dough is like a canvas, and through years of trial and error, Ellie embraces this approach to baking.
