On Monday 20 November 2017, Real Bread Campaign supporter E5 Bakehouse hosted a gathering for professional bakers from around the capital.
During the evening, around twenty bakers from E5, Better Health Bakery, Luminary Bakery and Today Bread heard from guest speaker Thomas Teffri-Chambelland, director and trainer at École Internationale de Boulangerie in Provence, southern France.
In an hour and a half talk, the former biologist shared some of his knowledge on the effects that various factors, including time, temperature, hydration, have on biological activity, acidity, flavour and structure of sourdough starter and bread. This was followed by questions and answers.
The bakers then had the chance to mingle over drinks and nibbles, kindly provided by E5 Bakehouse, which generously donated to the Campaign voluntary contributions towards the spread from attendees, notably the Today Bread team.
The format of the event was similar to that of the quarterly meet-ups organised by the Real Bread Ireland network, where members take it in turns to host and organise get togethers in their bakeries.
