Knead to Know: The basics of baking delicious bread at home
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 in the Kitsilano neighbourhood for the past 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 seven years ago, and ever since then he has had too much to stop. Florin is a strong believer in organic, sustainable and naturally leavened baking.
"I believe only good people make bread, so when I see someone making bread I Just know. And when bad people make bread, it probably won't turn out." - Florin Moldovan, as quoted in the Vancouver Observer's article on the January '12 UBC Farm bread baking workshop
