Exactly a week ago, I dared to do something I thought I could never do in this lifetime since I had time and money to spare. I scoured the internet for an activity I could do to have fun and possibly gain a new ability. After a few hours of searching, I found a class I could take to push myself outside my comfort zone—called the sourdough workshop in Singapore.

While taking a sourdough baking class may seem simple for some, this workshop is a big deal for someone like me who has zero knowledge and skill with baking or cooking. I tried preparing food for my loved ones before, but it always led to disasters. I often burn, undercook, or overseason a dish—causing my friends and family to drag me out of the kitchen whenever I try my hand at cooking or baking again.

Admittedly, I was not expecting my sourdough class in Singapore to go well due to my lack of skills. But to my surprise, the workshop went swimmingly. I enjoyed it so much that I want to continue creating baked goods—but this time, edible ones.

Everything I Like About My Sourdough Workshop

I did not see myself loving my sourdough baking class in Singapore, but I did. I did not think I would learn a thing due to my previous experiences with cooking and baking, but I was wrong. I discovered that bread-making, especially with sourdough, is a complex mix of art and science. I also developed an appreciation for the class, and here are the reasons why:

1. My Sourdough Classes Introduced Me To Baking (Correctly)

I tried making simple baked goods before but never had a formal introduction to them—which is likely why I always fail at making delicious banana loaves. But through my sourdough workshop, I learned about the basics and complexities of baking, allowing me to understand it.

2. My Sourdough Classes Gave Me Access To Baking Resources

I loved my sourdough class because aside from allowing me to take a sourdough starter kit home, the lessons did not end after I left my teacher’s baking classroom. I continued learning at home since the workshop includes access to tutorial and demonstration videos that aim to guide rookie bakers like me to bread-making.

3. My Sourdough Classes Kept My Mind Off My Worries

Admittedly, I also signed up for a sourdough baking class in Singapore since I felt stressed from work. I wanted the workshop to distract me from my worries—which is the exact thing it did.

4. My Sourdough Classes Helped Me Make New Friends

Coincidentally, my classmates were all inexperienced and unskilled bakers like me. Since we are all in the same boat, we had a blast during our sourdough workshop. We even met a few times outside our classes to catch up, share our baked goods, and bond.
