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.
Presenter Bio: Florin is an artisan baker who has been baking bread in the Kitsilano neighbourhood for the over 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 eight years ago, and he has too much fun to stop. While he has given up professional baking, he still stays involved by teaching artisan baking workshops and writing on his Baking Stories blog. Florin believes strongly in organic, sustainable and naturally leavened baking.
Cost: $35 ($1.87+ registration fee). Materials included.
