Learn how to start and nurture a sourdough starter in this free online class taught by Anne-Marie Bonneau, the Zero-Waste Chef

All you need to start and nurture a lively sourdough starter culture is flour, water, time and a bit of knowhow. In this Zoom class, Anne-Marie Bonneau, the Zero-Waste Chef, will show you how to start a starter culture, how to keep it alive and what do do with the discard left over from feedings. Bring your questions and I’ll answer some of them after the demo.

If you’d like to make a starter during the class, please bring the materials listed below. Or just sit back and listen during the class if you prefer.


  • 1/2 cup unbleached white flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour or rye flour
  • 1/2 cup tap water

Notes on ingredients

  • If you don’t have these types of flours, just bring whatever flours you have
  • I use organic flour but non-organic will work


  • Kitchen scale if you have one and measuring spoons if you don’t
  • One-cup measuring cup
  • Small glass jar that can hold one or two cups or another container to store your starter in, preferably something wide-mouth and shallow to make removing starter easy
  • Fork for mixing
  • Scraping spatula (nice to have but don’t worry if you don’t have one)
  • A towel to wipe your hands
