Thank You to the Home Bakers Who Put their Best Bread Forward at this Year's Greenmarket Home Bakers Meet-up

From the latest newsletter.... 

March 16, 2018 --

Last month we broke bread and toasted to our favorite bakers in the city, you! Participants also had an opportunity to brainstorm with bread geniuses Austin Hall of She Wolf Bakery, Sharon Burns- Leader of Bread Alone Bakery, and Peter Endriss of Runner & Stone. Austin reminded us that if today's batch doesn't turn out, tomorrow we can try again and move closer to that perfect loaf. Sharon let us know that water, not flour, is the way to go when shaping an einkorn loaf. And Peter urged us to "Keep experimenting!"

We learned about the benefits of milling your own flour (thank you Paul Lebeau of Mock Mill!) and how beer can help combat food waste (thank you Jo Ehrenreich of Toast Ale!). Maybe we even scored a tablespoon of the coveted microbiome that is She Wolf starter!

Thanks so much to all who came out to spread the love and share a loaf!

And thank you to our sponsors for helping make the night a success.
