July 28, 2017 @ 9:50 am – 11:30 am


Join Renée as she explores incorporating whole grains into some of her favorite cookie recipes.  During this relaxed class, we will make several cookies using local Skagit Wheat to serve following a Grain Gathering meal and share inspiration, tips and tricks for you to return home and fill your cookie jar. 

Renée Bourgault

Renée and her husband Scott Mangold opened Breadfarm in July 2003 on the fertile flats of the Skagit Valley, Washington in the rural community of Edison.  Breadfarm strives to build community by using ingredients from farmers and producers in the region to craft food that is both delicious and good for people’s health.   A baker-by-marriage, she oversee’s the pastry department as a complement to Scott’s naturally leavened loaves.  With a newly installed flour mill at their bakery, incorporating whole grains into their existing formulas has been a focus.  To make something good even better requires sourcing high quality ingredients and finding subtle nuances of flavor.
