SLOW U: Breaking Bread with Three Women Who Know Their Dough
Join three women who know their dough: Lynne Christy Anderson, author of "Breaking Bread:Recipes and Stories from Immigrant Kitchens," a book that recounts in loving detail the culinary traditions and memories of people who have come here from around the world, bringing their recipes with them; Jessamyn Waldman, founder of non-profit Hot Bread Kitchen that helps low-income, mostly immigrant, women bake their way into good food business careers by producing authentic, delicious, multi-ethnic breads using organic and local ingredients; and June Russell, Greenmarket Manager for Strategic Development and Farm Inspection, who is working to restore NYS wheat production by fostering relationships between NYC bakers and upstate farmers and millers producing organic, heirloom wheat, spelt, corn, and flour. (Greenmarket is a program of GrowNYC.) You will enjoy a reading from "Breaking Bread" and a lively discussion on transplanting traditional old-country recipes to a new land while tasting Jessamyn's breads accompanied by NYS wine and American farmstead and artisan cheeses. Autographed copies of "Breaking Bread" will be available.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the Slow Food NYC Harvest Time in Schools and Neighborhood Farms programs.
