Mark Doxtader makes his beloved and annually anticipated wholegrain bagels for Saturday morning breakfast at the Grain Gathering. If you’d like to master the art of rolling a bagel by hand, join Mark and others in this demo and get-the-job-done session.
Mark is the owner of Tastebud in Portland, Oregon. He writes:
Once, we were a farm. Then, we built an oven. We started baking bread, bagels and pizza in the open-air markets of Portland. We baked in dark winter mornings and through long hot summer days. We began to travel near and far pulling our wood fired oven. Then we built a big red truck with wings to shelter us from the rain and sun. Now we have a place in Multnomah Village to call home.
Tastebud began in 1999 under the creative vision and hands of Mark Doxtader. But like most good things, Tastebud is built on a community of friends, family and farmers.
