Bread is truly one of the great levelers of the food world. Nearly every cuisine has its own version of this deeply satisfying kitchen staple -- from Italy’s flat focaccias to the charred, puffed naans of India. For this SOBEWFF® hands-on master class, you’ll learn how to make one of the most versatile and well-loved breads -- sourdough -- from the master baker himself, Zak Stern (aka Zak the Baker).

Join our hospitality community’s resident mensch at SGWS Wynwood, Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits’ hospitality center located just around the corner from Stern’s bustling bakery, as he teaches you both the theoretical and practical framework behind his top-secret recipe. You’ll learn how to mix, shape, bake and preserve your crusty disc-like creations using some of the best ingredients, equipment, and tools available, capped off by an informative Q&A aimed at all bread lovers -- everyone from a home cook to a budding professional baker. Complete with step-by-step instructions and insider tips for preparing the perfect loaf, this fun-filled morning has a winning recipe of its own: equal parts education and entertainment. And yes, we used our measuring cups.
