Al, founder of Fikira Bakery, will share their very own multigenerational, whole grain starter, and walk you through every step of the awesome sourdough process. You’ll gain pro knowledge about bread making and local sourcing in Philadelphia, and you’ll have the opportunity to meet two radical Philly foodmakers. We’ll have time to taste five varieties of locally grown & baked sourdough from Fikira, and you’ll be sent home with your own starter (jars provided).
Al is a farmer-turned-chef with roots in story-telling and community organizing. They are the founder and head baker of Fikira Bakery; and one of the founders of 1149 Cooperative in South Philly.
