Taste and Learn with Grain Advocate Elizabeth Dyck
and Artisan Baker Stefan Senders of Wide Awake Bakery
Agronomist Elizabeth Dyck bets you don't know what grain tastes like.
She is an influential voice for rare and heritage grain in the Northeast,
and she's coming to Pittsburgh April 3 and 4 with artisan baker Stefan Senders of
Wide Awake Bakery near Ithaca.
They plan to offer Pittsburgh's food community a grain awakening.There'll be
hands-on opportunities to taste for yourself how not all grain is created equal.
This is a first-for-Pittsburgh experience with a grain expert--mentor to growers and chefs--
and a baker with a cult following for bread baked exclusively with flour grown and
milled a few miles from his bakery.
