The Dark History of Bread – Jeffrey Hamelman

July 26, 2018 @ 3:20 pm – 4:00 pm

We’ll talk about some of the more somber historical aspects of bread, such as hunger, disease, and poison.

Jeffrey Hamelman began baking professionally in 1976 and has felt a gratitude for the work of baking that has only increased ever since. He is grateful for the steady improvement in the quality of good baking in North America, grateful for the genuine camaraderie among bakers worldwide, grateful for the mutual commitment that bakers forge with their communities; and deeply grateful for that one eternal food that he eats seven days a week—bread. It’s all about the bread.
