Chef Eric Henning, Executive Pastry Chef, Island Creek Oyster Bar, Row 34

Join Chef Eric and learn how to make sourdough using cast iron combo cookers. We’ll learn how to make a sourdough starter, how to feed the starter, and basic bread knowledge including types of flour, hydration levels, the importance of salt, and yeast. We’ll also learn about method and formula for sourdough and of course tips for baking sourdough in cast iron and Dutch oven. Making sourdough at home will never be easier.



Born and raised in San Diego, Henning first ventured into the food and beverage industry at the bakeshop at San Diego State University while earning his undergraduate degree at the Grossmont College culinary school in La Mesa. Henning then remained on the West Coast as the head baker at Bob’s Well Bread in Los Alamos. Currently, he’s the Executive Pastry Chef at Island Creek Oyster Bar and Row 34, where he creates breads and pastries for the restaurants, as well as supplies the kitchens and guests at Eastern Standard, The Hotel Commonwealth, and The Hawthorne. From perfecting his croissant lamination techniques to creating the very essential bun of the restaurants’ classic New England lobster rolls, Henning is constantly learning, testing, adapting and adopting new recipes.
