Culinary Baking Artistry - The Manresa Bread Project


Chef David Kinch of the internationally acclaimed Manresa Restaurant and Avery Ruzicka, Baker/Partner in the Manresa Bread Project will lead a seminar discussing the revolution taking place in the world of fine artisan bread baking.

 

In David Kinch's Manresa kitchen the creative process starts with great product and great technique. For Avery Ruzicka, head baker at Manresa and cofounder of ManresaBread, bread is passion.

Examples of various flour types and sources will be available to try. Learn why both David and Avery believe we are on the cusp of a new Bread Revolution and how easily the home baker and bread consumer can be a part of it.
