The E5 Bakehouse is an East London artisan bakery and coffee shop. Ben Mackinnon, through his E5 Bakehouse, is bringing the art of sourdough baking to Hackney. We are passionate about sourdough and the lost traditions of our baking ancestors. Using organic, locally-sourced ingredients, we serve delicious, daily-baked breads, fresh lunches, homemade cakes and coffee. Our head bakers also share their knowledge and expertise in a weekly bread course.
The class is led by one of e5 bakehouse's seasoned bakers. After an introductory session, it's down to business. Weighing out the ingredients, and plunging hands into mixing bowls. Typically 4 breads are made over the course of the day; a pain de campagne, ciabatta, 66% rye, and bagels. All these breads use wild sourdough, and the class teaches how to sustain a sourdough mother, along with teaching the kneading and shaping styles used here.
The intention is to build confidence in all aspects of bread making with an emphasis on sourdough.
The class costs £95 for the day and includes a sourdough "mother", bannetons, recipes, coffee and lunch. It is suitable for all abilities and class size is limited to 10.
