Fresh Milling Flour at Home Is a Game Changer
With Maria Speck, award-winning author of Ancient Grains for Modern Meals and Simply Ancient Grains
Workshop: Date and time: Saturday May 15 – 3:00 to 5:00 PM
Fresh milling whole grains at home opens up a universe of flavors and textures in your kitchen. It adds a new dimension to all your baking—from simple pancakes and muffins to cookies, cakes, and slow sourdough breads. Fresh milling cornmeal for polenta, or rye for a quick porridge, will change your dinner fare forever. And your sourdough starter will be brought back to life. Learn all about the many uses of fresh milling, and the subtle aromas it adds to your table.
Maria was raised in Germany and Greece and has used a table-top mill since she started baking as a young adult. She will demonstrate the ease of fresh milling and answer questions about different mills and the sourcing of good grains and flours. She will demonstrate a new recipe for 4th of July, “Cornbread—Red, Rye, and Blue”, made with fresh milled rye, blueberries, and cranberries.
