NOLS: No-knead to Sourdough @ NOLS: The Forks Branch Library
Sep 28 @ 4:00 pm

NOLS: No-knead to Sourdough

Friday September 28, 2018 4pm  Forks Library

Victoria Redhead Miller, author of From No-knead to Sourdough: A Simpler Approach to Handmade Bread will present on making your own sourdough starter at the Forks North Olympic Library System (NOLS) in September.

Sourdough starter, activated by wild yeast, can be used for making a lot more than just loaf breads and pizza.  Miller will show that it’s easier to use and keep than you might think.  She will provide instruction on making, maintaining, and baking with sourdough in your own kitchen.  Register now to go home with your very own jar of sourdough starter!

Victoria Redhed Miller lives on a 40-acre off-the-grid farm outside of Sequim.  In her newest book, she blends her own journey toward self-reliance with her fascination for traditional homesteading skills and love of good food.  Miller’s previous books include Craft Distilling and Pure Poultry.

Space is limited and registration is required to attend.  Register at www.nols.org or by contacting your local NOLS branch. Participants are invited to bring their own pint-sized jars with a wide mouth and a lid; jars will be provided if you don’t have one.  Miller will have copies of her books for sale and signing after each presentation.
