From staff reports

For those who love the smell and taste of homemade sourdough bread, but don’t have the time or knowledge to create a sourdough starter, baker Jenny Rader-Bakos has the perfect workshop.

Rader-Bakos will share tools, tips and storage options for feeding (and discarding) sourdough starters at 1 p.m. Sunday, March 10, at Elz Tastes and Tea behind Shari’s Restaurant off Sullivan Road and Valleyway Avenue in Spokane Valley.

By the workshop’s end, attendees will have created a sourdough naan bread to take home and enjoy that night.

“Sourdough doesn’t have to be hard or an inconvenience! I can save you money, and show you how to have a little fun along the way!” Rader-Bakos wrote on Facebook.

Baking materials, gloves and naan bread ingredients will be provided, and class attendees will leave the workshop with a sourdough starter in a jar and two dried starters in take-home bags.

Attendees must provide note-taking paper, an apron and a small mixing bowl.

The workshop costs $50, and RSVPs are required by March 6, with 24 seats available.

Payment is required to secure a spot, which can be done in-person at Elz Taste and Tea or online via Venmo @jenbakos or PayPal @mybotanicalbusiness.
