What better gift for Mother’s Day than a “Taking Care of Your Mother” weekend!
This is not your typical “relaxing time at the spa” gift. Far from it! Instead this is jam packed, two days’ worth of classes on Mother’s Day weekend 2024 specially tailored toward that special Mom/Grandmom/Mother-figure in your life. First, they will learn how to make and maintain the Sourdough Mother culture and how to use it to create several dishes on Friday night – all while enjoying wood-fired pizza made on our sourdough crust. Then on Saturday, they will be treated to breakfast at the Modern Stone Age Kitchen followed by a sourdough bread class and ends with lunch that includes sandwiches made on our sourdough bread.
Yep that’s right folks – you can treat your Mommas to Dinner on Friday night, breakfast and lunch on Saturday plus a Sourdough Mother and a Sourdough Breadmaking class all on Mother’s Day weekend. Gotta say we’ve got you covered!!

Here is more information on each class:
Sourdough Mother Class:
Learn how to take care of your mother 😉
Learn how to start, maintain, feed, and cook with sourdough mother. Our mother is the backbone of our Rise line of sourdough products and allows us to cook everything from bread to crackers to waffles.
This class will specifically focus on the sourdough mother process so participants will learn the science behind the:
- fermentation process,
- the math behind calculating your mother-build, and
- recipes for cooking with mother.
We will walk participants through all steps for how to get your mother actively growing, discuss the feeding schedule, learn how to maintain your mother even if you are away on vacation, and then transform it into delicious products from sourdough waffles, crackers, and beer cheese!
Sourdough Breadmaking Class:
Join Dr. Bill Schindler at the Eastern Shore Food Lab (2nd floor of Modern Stone Age Kitchen) for a start to finish approach to baking hand-built, real, traditional long-fermented sourdough bread.
This class will walk you through the long, slow fermentation that utilizes wild bacteria and yeasts transforms difficult, and dangerous to digest grains into nutrient dense, bioavailable, delicious bread.
Dr. Bill will discuss harnessing hyper-local bacteria and yeast to start your mother culture all the way through to scoring and baking successful loaves in your home oven. You will literally go through every step of the bread making process (via some tv show cooking magic to make that all possible in 3 hours). This class builds upon the sourdough mother class but don’t worry – you can just take this one because we’ll give you some of our MSAK mother.
Each participant will take home a freshly baked loaf that they scored and baked plus a loaf of sourdough to bake at home!
This is the same process that he taught Brianna who ran with the knowledge and launched Rise by Brianna in April 2020 that is now the sourdough line of our Modern Stone Age Kitchen.
This course is the only thing standing between you and the ability to bake incredible, healthy loaves of bread for your family.
To ensure maximum student participation, space is limited.
