Flour up your hands and get ready to rise into the world of bread. Artisan baker Florin Moldovan will describe the science behind the perfect loaf, the grains that form it and some of the cultural lore of baking bread.
This advanced bread baking workshop is designed for home bakers who are aiming to further improve their baking skills and their home-baked loaves. Participants are encouraged to bring to the workshop one of their own bread creations. We will sample, critique and tweak your favourite loaf. Attendance at a beginner bread baking workshop with Florin is not a prerequisite!
Presenter Bio: Florin is an artisan baker who has been baking in the Kitsilano neighbourhood for the past seven years. After arriving in Canada and yearning for the quality of traditional European breads, he decided to teach himself how to bake. This led to a 2-year sabbatical from his job, during which he decided to play baker. That was seven years ago, and ever since then he has had too much to stop. Florin is a strong believer in organic, sustainable and naturally leavened baking.
