Event Description

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 beginner workshop will provide participants with the techniques needed to make excellent loaves at home using readily available ingredients.

To register:


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.

"I believe only good people make bread, so when I see someone making bread I Just know. And when bad people make bread, it probably won't turn out." - Florin Moldovan, as quoted in the Vancouver Observer's article on the January '12 UBC Farm bread baking workshop


Date: Wednesday, March 21st, 6pm-9pm

Location:  UBC Farm Centre

6182 South Campus Rd

Vancouver BC

Cost: $30 ($1.74+ registration fee). Materials included.


What to bring: A large plastic or stainless steel mixing bowl for your dough, which you will take home (please feel free to bring additional large bowls if you can share them)! Please also bring a notebook and pen.

Hi Cylia!

Although organizing a workshop closer to Cedar Cottage Village sounds wonderful, part of the goal of our Growing Season Workshop Series is to bring people out to the UBC Farm. We also don't currently have the staffing resources to organize something in East Van at this time. However, please feel free to email me for Florin Moldovan's contact info, because he might be interested in hosting a workshop in the Cedar Cottage Village as well.

I hope you're able to make it out to the UBC Farm this season!

Kind regards,

Anelyse Weiler
