Baker & Author Daniel Leader

in Conversation with Halee and John Wepking of Meadowlark Organics November 17th 3pm-5pm at Floriole

Daniel Leader is a pioneer of artisanal bread baking in the United States and one of its most beloved icons. The founder of Bread Alone, a bakery in Woodstock, New York, that has sourced organic flour from day one of operation. Leader has been a passionate advocate for quality made baked goods, traditional methods, sustainable sourcing and environmental stewardship. He’ll join farmers and AGC Partner Members, Halee and John Wepking of Meadowlark Organics, to discuss his new cookbook, LIVING BREAD: Tradition and Innovation in Artisan Bread Making.

Leader’s extensive research for LIVING BREAD took him to farms, mills, laboratories, and bakeries in France, Italy, and Germany, where he met with experts, discussed current practices (wheat farming, advances in milling, sourdough starters, mechanics of mixing dough), and baked alongside them. The result is a cookbook filled with the latest and most relevant information when it comes to making today’s best artisan bread so that home bakers may achieve professional results at home.
Floriole will provide bread samples. City Lit will have books available to purchase and Leader will sign them after the discussion. Not able to attend the event? Purchase the book here.

Thanksgiving Cooking Class

Reserve your spot today for a popular Thanksgiving-focused class, taught by Rachel Bernier-Green and Sandra Holl! Learn how to make cornbread (gluten-free), corn stuffing, sweet potato pie with a combo rye and wheat pie crust, and grain pilaf with butternut squash (vegetarian)—all with regionally-produced artisan grains. Farmer Andy Hazzard of Hazzard Free Farm will talk about growing these small grains, connecting the farm to the items that you’ll make and take home with you.
Each instructor has an impressive background and extensive experience to share. Bernier-Green is the owner of Laine’s Bake Shop in both the Morgan Park neighborhood of Chicago and the newly-opened One Eleven Food Hall in the Pullman neighborhood. She counts Whole Foods Market among her clients and has a robust following of customers who are very passionate about her peach cobbler and rye brownies. Sandra Holl is the owner of Floriole, a beloved cafe and bakery in Lincoln Park specializing in French inspired recipes made with Midwestern ingredients. In 2016 Holl was named Pastry Chef of the Year at Chicago’s Jean Banchet Awards. Reserve your spot today!
