(drawing of bread) BREAD PAVILION 2012
Join us as we open the 2012 season by welcoming 15 local bakers, each of whom will be creating their vision of a great loaf of bread made with flour from a variety of grains now being grown in our region.

PIZZA MAKING WITH JIM LAHEY
Jim Lahey of Sullivan Street Bakery will set up a wood-burning oven and conduct pizza-making demonstrations along with
Co. chef Matt Aita at 1:00pm, 2:00pm, and 3:00pm.

Throughout the afternoon, Jim will also be answering questions and signing copies of his latest book,
My Pizza: The Easy No-Knead Way to Make Spectacular Pizza at Home.


A RENAISSANCE OF LOCAL GRAINS

Though our region is well suited to growing grains, an event like this would not have been possible in 2008, when we held the first Bread Pavilion in collaboration with the Sullivan Street Bakery. There was simply not enough local grain production to satisfy the needs of commercial bakers, nor was there enough interest or demand by bakers for local grain.

This all changed through the synergy created by a number of individuals and organizations, including pioneering farmer
s who began planting heirloom grain varieties; research institutions such as OGRIN and the Heritage Wheat Conservancy who worked with funding from the Northeast SARE and other sources to link growers to bakers and other end users, as well as disseminate information; and New York's Greenmarket system, which in 2010 mandated that all its bread bakers use at least 15% local grain.

This combination of research, market demand, and much hard work has had stunning results. On average, Greenmarket's bakers now use 50% local grain (well above the mandate); and some of them, including New Amsterdam Market regulars
Orwasher's, Nordic Breads, and Runner & Stone use 100% local grain in many or all of their breads. These bakers are all true artisans because they are learning to deal with the variability inherent when natural products such as heirloom grains are grown on small farms, influenced by local conditions.

The result is worth it: tastier and more nutritious foods that are part of an equitable food system. The buying power of New York City has also had very tangible effects on local communities upstate, with new businesses (such as Farmer Ground Flour in Trumansburg, NY) providing employment and economic diversity. We are honored to host the New Amsterdam Market Bread Pavilion in recognition of all these efforts.
