Conference, Maine, July 29-31

King Arthur Flour is doing a Kneading and Artisan Bread Fair in Maine, July 29-31, with Jeffrey Hamelman as the keynote speaker. Of interest to me is an understanding of the milling process and the wood-burning baking sessions. It seems like money well-spent ($250-$300) if you are local or somewhat local.

Hubby just built me a pizza/bread oven...wood burning...and I am just so wanting to learn more about it. I would love to attend the seminar in Maine, but school here starts that week for my son, and I cannot be away. Is there ever any similar offerings on the west side of the United States?

Either in the Midwest or on the west coast. I would encourage you to express interest on King Arthur Flour's (KAF's) blog: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/blog/.


I am not an employee or anything like that, but the KAF organization does seem to listen to customers, be on trend, and offer interesting events.


Or take one of their courses: https://thriva.activenetwork.com/Reg4/%28S%28lzjzb0jkikyuw4mc341lmo45%29%29/Form.aspx?regkey=RpYOYPxE37%2beky8ByS4XhQ%3d%3d


They are reasonably priced.


Closer to home to you might to the San Francisco Baking Institute. They have a 3-day session but it is quite expensive $598: http://www.sfbi.com/workshop_wood_oven.html.


Or simply scout around on YouTube for videos. I've found amazing stuff on there. But for sure kiss you husband and start trying stuff. You are a lucky person.

I'd really love to attend, but it's so far away :(  Maybe I can talk my wife into it ;)

The timing is right and Mr Shallots hasn't had lobster in a while and it seems more interesting than anything else that's tried to get my attention this year.


It's a form of pampering that only folks on here would understand.

We're heading up from PA.  Just got hotel reservations (2nd choice) today.  But I'm confused about the registration.  Form says $250, but the workshop and lecture schedule says, "Unless otherwise specified, all lectures & workshops are open - no sign-up required."  Is it $250 for two lunches and a dinner?

I wish I knew but I don't. If I were you I'd call King Arthur Flour: 800.827.6836. Their customer service is terrific and since they are sponsors, they'll know.
