There are many online resources to help us become better bread bakers. And, of course, practicing in our own kitchens is essential to honing our skills. Nonetheless, there's nothing quite like sitting down with other bread bakers, in-person, to brainstorm and sort out a complex baking problem.
Stop by the Bread Clinic for a few minutes, or stay for the whole hour and a half. Come to ask advice, offer advice, or both. Come to receive focussed, one-on-one help with a bread-baking problem, or to simply listen and see what you can learn. Come to socialize with other bread bakers in Chicago. We look forward to some in-depth discussions and interesting conversations.
Bring your questions and your curiosity. Organizers will bring our library of bread books and bread formulas, for reference.
You're welcome to let us know you're coming, but it's not required. Drop-ins are welcome and encouraged.
Unlike our previous events, it's not a requirement to bake bread and bring it to this event. If you do bring bread you've baked, we'll be happy to touch it, smell it, and analyze its crust and crumb, but we won't be tasting at this event.
