One of cheese’s ancient partners is having a difficult time in the Motherland: France.
The first annual Bread Fair will be in Skowhegan on Saturday, August 1st, from 10 am to 2 pm. Live music, fired-up ovens producing samples of bread made from Maine grains, and tables offering the accoutrement of bread pleasure and production – books, tools, small farm equipment, cheese, jams, grains, and flour – will invite ever more people to consider the good reasons for supporting local foods.
The Fair will be held in conjunction with the 2009 Kneading Conference in Skowhegan (July 30 and 31st), and the organizers are looking for local cheesemakers who would like to participate in the Fair, which will be free and open to the public.
Contact coordinator Wendy Hebb (email@example.com) before June 22nd if you would like to sign up, or for more information.
