Thursday, September 12 – Saturday, September 14, 2013
A farmer, miller, and baker in every village! That’s the idea behind the Kneading Conference West. The annual event brings together professional bakers, home bakers, maltsters, millers, farmers, wheat breeders, food writers, wood-oven builders, and people who come to enjoy “summer camp for bread lovers”. The three days are filled with workshops, panel discussions and demonstrations. In addition to hands-on baking workshops for the home and professional baker, you will find workshops on planting a backyard grain garden, brewing beer, making bagels in a wood fired oven, building a wood-fired oven, comparing flavors in a variety of wheats and other grains, and much more. Saturday culminates in an optional field trip to a local farm, mill, and bakery. We are working on the 2013 schedule but in the meantime, please visit the 2012 schedule for examples of some of the topics covered.
Please be sure to join our email list for Kneading Conference West news and event announcements. If you plan to join us in September, be sure to register early. You can access the registration form here. Enrollment is limited and fills up quickly. For more information: email@example.com.
The Kneading Conference West grows out of the very successful Kneading Conference held annually in Skowhegan, Maine, now in its seventh year (www.kneadingconference.com) and described in the following articles: New York Times and Gastronomica.
