Make way as Grand Central Market hosts the first-ever Los Angeles Bread Festival on June 6-7, a free, two-day celebration of the Southern Californian artisan bread renaissance.
Curated by Grand Central Market creative director Joseph Shuldiner, who is also founder and director of the Institute of Domestic Technology, the Los Angeles Bread Festival will be an opportunity to experience the many flavors of L.A. bread through an assortment of pop-ups, workshops (including a community bread bake), demonstrations, and moderated panel discussions.
Hands-on family friendly activities will include "Feel the Churn Butter Aerobics," a participatory butter-making/aerobic class, tortilla-making, sourdough starter 101 and more.
The Festival will also include a 12-minute sneak peek of the highly anticipated documentary "The Grain Divide," a film by JD McLelland that aims to change society's perceptions of wheat and mend the broken relationship between humans and grains. The panel discussion "Field to Table" will explore the L.A. bread movement from the perspective of local farmers, millers, bakers and chefs.
Throughout the two-day festival, Grand Central Market vendors will provide an eclectic offering of bread items--traditional, hearth-baked loaves from Clark Street Bread, cornbread from Horse Thief BBQ, flatbread from Madcapra, zucchini bread from Valerie's Confections, handmade tortillas from Chiles Secos, cheeses and butter from DTLA Cheese and much more. Among the local bakers and other purveyors setting up shop in the Market during the festival are Grist & Toll, Mark Stambler of Pagnol Boulanger, Erik Knutzen of best-selling book "The Urban Homestead," Fat Uncle Farms, Spread the Love, The King's Roost, Saving the Season, and Los Angeles Bread Bakers.
