Curious about flour? Then come to the library on Saturday, June 2, at 11 a.m., and study grains. You’ll learn about the structure of grain kernels, the different types of grains, and milling styles and leavening processes. You’ll find out what is known and not known about nutrition of bread and grains, and be able to interpret the myths and facts swirling about our daily bread.
You’ll bake hoe cakes from freshly ground grains, and leave with a full belly and a good understanding of how to approach grains as a baker. Your presenter is Troy-based author Amy Halloran.
