A little while ago I received an email from Paddy Murray with information on a Sourdough Bread Making Course I was interested. If you attend please take some photos and write a review for Illawarra Food and I'll send you a $20 gift voucher for your efforts!

Hi there, just letting you know about my last sourdough course for the year. New is my inclusion of making pancakes and muffins including the famous Russian Blini pancake in addition to the basic theme of how to make bread. Blini are a traditional savoury pancake made from either buckwheat or potato  and topped with savory foods such as smoked salmon or olives and feta cheese. The authentic blini is made with sourdough culture. Attached a couple of images that are available to be used. 
Below some words about my next course: Feel free to contact me if you require further information. Paddy

Sourdough baking is not just about bread it was also the traditional way of making pancakes, blini and muffins. Knowing how to maintain a viable sourdough culture is essential and is an important part of Paddy’s course on sourdough bread making. He now includes instructions for making pancakes and muffins in his course as well as the famous Russian blini pancake. ‘Once you have a good culture you can make an amazing variety of tasty and healthy foods’.  Learning to make sourdough bread is very hard just using books and recipes. There are tips and tricks that can only be learnt through hands on demonstration and then it is easy.   
Paddy supplies a culture originally from Austria that has proven its worth over the years for sourdough baking in Australia. Recipes for San Franciscan sourdough, whole-wheat and European ryes are covered in the day long course.

His next course in Bundanoon is on Sat Nov 3d from 10am to 3pm. He can be contacted on 0427837830 or email Many bakers, chefs and home bakers have learnt to make sourdough breads at Paddy’s courses.
