Building Community Ferment: Sourdough Workshop

sourdough starters

Event Date


In this virtual workshop, you will learn how to create a sourdough starter. The starter can be used to make a range of foods, not only bread. In this workshop, facilitator Stephanie Maroney will share some history of sourdough and show how to use your starter for savory vegetable sourdough pancakes. 

All local participants (Davis/Winters/Woodland/West Sacramento) will receive a free sourdough kit after the event containing a glass jar, sourdough starter, and flour required to keep the sourdough going!

About Building Community Ferment 

Started by Stephanie Maroney and Sean Nash in 2018, this workshop series is free and open to everyone. Building Community Ferment is both a practical introduction to the art of transforming foods through bacterial collaboration and a creative space to ponder our relationships to each other and the more-than-human world. Come to these workshops prepared to learn a fun skill and be inspired by lively microorganisms.

All events in the 2021 series are via Zoom, co-sponsored with the Mary L. Stephens — Davis Branch of the Yolo County Library, with a materials grant from UC Davis Global Affairs.
