Bread is the staff of life, they say, and nearly every culture has a variety of this staple food to call its own. In Appalachia, the traditional specialty is salt risin’ bread! Join local bakers for a bread-baking class with a special emphasis on using whole grain flours to make a variety of breads: from flat breads to light tender rolls, from sourdoughs to sweet buns, from quick breads to long slow risings.


Highlights

• In the newly remodeled kitchen at Cedar Lakes Craft Center, enjoy hands-on classes in baking salt risin’ bread and more.
• Mary Beth Lind, author of "Recipes from the Old Mill: Baking with Whole Grains," shares her experience and love of working with whole grains.
• Experience the culture of Appalachia through lively evening entertainment.
