Jérôme Rigot is an artisan baker in the Greater Bangor area. After immigrating to the US West coast in the early 80s, Jerome was not able to find good bread and started making bread for his household and himself. Completely self-taught, he is continuously learning about the very challenging art of making a healthy and tasty sourdough bread. He is now using exclusively stoneground flour from Maine Grains. He has been baking for 35+ years.
Don’t delay, this workshop is limited to 25 people!
