My fiancée is French and he loves it! We have fell in love with Flourist bread that we are now ordering once during the week and once in for the weekend. He is so happy to have good bread like in his home country. And me, I am Lowfood map intaker and love the bread and digest it well! A hidden pearl in Vancouver! Cheers, Liv
Thank you Flourist for putting together such an entertaining and educational class! Perfect timing too-all the quarantine sourdough! Just placed a flour order too, to keep the family full of yummy bread for as long as needed :)
The sourdough baking class was incredible and it greatly exceeded my expectations! The atmosphere was welcoming and comfortable. You could see and feel how passionate everyone at The Flourist is about creating healthy, organic, Canadian flour and educating everyone on it. We felt right at home and there were so many yummy treats for us. Campbell walked us through each step of the process with a thorough explanation and help was available. We were given everything needed to bake our own sourdough at home and I now feel confident to make my own sourdough and can’t wait to get started!! Thanks so much for the wonderful experience!
I had such a wonderful experience last night. There was a warm and welcoming atmosphere as soon I stepped into the restaurant, the teaching was excellent and the bread? Oh Lordeee! The most delicious that I have ever tasted (besides my mum's of course). In trepidation but still looking forward to attempting my own sourdough at home. Flour, straight from the farmer with wheatgerm and bran in tact and milled on site? This is the kind of activism that I can get my teeth into!
Wonderful! This class was a great informative experience. I had been reading many books on sourdough bread making and trying various methods but there is nothing like taking this hands on class whether you are a complete beginner or have had some experience. The baker was an excellent teacher and I learned new approaches to baking sourdough bread. The atmosphere was easy and very comfortable. Couldn't wait to get home and bake my loaf of bread the next morning!
