Each baking category guides you with video and printables through 2 recipes, 2 methods and a challenge, where you can WIN prizes!

In addition, we provide additional Bi-Monthly Live Student Masterclasses and Bi-Monthly Live Q&A's to supplement the course material and to answer YOUR specific questions. You do not need to attend these calls live, as they are recorded for your convenience.

    Sourdough 101 is not just a101

    Posted by Lisa O on 30th Jan 2021

    I would not consider myself a novice cook or baker, and have made quite a bit of bread in my time, but this class has elevated my skills substantially. Love that I can work at my own pace and learn to adjust my prep to fit my life/time. Shannon is a clear and excellent teacher. A joy to do!

    Sourdough success

    Posted by Cindy Penner on 30th Jan 2021

    I knew I needed a project being lost in the pandemic.. I found this this course by pure random chance. I have been always interested in sourdough so I took an internet risk and I am so glad I did!! It was a game changer. I have since bought the pastry course. So very thankful for the videos as I’m a visual learner. If you are hoping to finesse your sourdough game.. I would def recommend this series.

    This is such a great intro course if you want to learn sourdough, the best part is that Shannon makes the course so exsessible to fit sourdough into your schedule with different methods along with tips and tricks to use. I can't wait to try her other sourdough courses like the pastry one!!!!

    I am absolutely loving the Sourdough Series 101 course. I am having so much fun deciding what to make next! Most of my family are sensitive to gluten so this was a goal for me to help them. They love the sourdough baking and often put in an order for their favourites (especially The Belle Loaf and Everything Bagels!) The learning tools provided by Shannon in the courses are excellent; from the instructional videos, to the support that we receive from our Facebook group and excellent customer service - all of these make our sourdough journey successful and a pleasurable learning experience. Everything about the Sourdough Schoolhouse is excellent - I highly recommend their business.

    Fabulous course!

    Posted by Elisa Fielding on 22nd Jan 2021

    I took part in one of the free challenges and learned the Belle loaf, pancakes and scones. My husband and I are hooked, I’m baking every week and Shannon has made it so easy to fit sourdough into my life. Family and friends love my bakes and I have to make loaves when I visit them. The online Facebook group is so helpful and is a great community. Even though I’m based in the uk i feel part of the SSH community.

    I bought this series on black Friday and had NO IDEA how much I would love learning from Shannon. I have to say that I think it's unique that she is able to deliver the correct info, demonstrate the "moves", and provide print outs (I learn best when I can hear, see and read a recipe!), so this worked perfectly. Its unique in that you don't feel like you are watching a cooking show but it also doesn't seem amateur or like she is trying to impress anyone. She is fast and to the point with a wonderful personality, which makes watching the videos fast and simple. I often have them on while I'm multitasking, then watch them again while I am starting my mix with the print out next to me. Shannon doesn't waste any time, and before you know it, you'll be diving head first into the beautiful Belle loaf. After my first bake, I was hooked! I've made everything in the course and also went on an entire week cooking/baking binge where I stocked my deep freezer with delicious loaves, bagels, pretzels, hamburger buns, dinner rolls, pizza doughs, etc! I've made belle loaves almost every single day since I purchased the series, and my friends and family look forward to trying my newest inclusion breads. My current obsession is black truffle olive oil belles! Delicious, fun, smart and 100% worth it!
