AboutWe're a group of avid, autodidactic bread bakers, who come together to share bread-baking experiences and learn from one another. Begun in January 2011 as a group for amateurs, over the years we've developed into a resource for amateurs and professionals, alike.

Past projects:
From January 2011 to December 2014, we held in-person "Taste-and-Tell" meetings for bread bakers in Chicago. Browse the archives.
From February 2012 to May 2015, we moderated #BreadChat™. #BreadChat was a monthly Twitter discussion hour for bakers of yeasted, artisanal breads. During #BreadChat, we broadened and deepened our knowledge about bread baking, exposed ourselves to new concepts, and networked with fellow bread bakers around the world.
