The Future of Bread:Takeaways from the 2017 and 2018 International Symposium on Bread
The Symposium (nicknamed "On the Rise") has featured 20 speakers during its first two years, all addressing the subject, The Future of Bread, from various angles. These presentations, similar to TED Talks, explore bread in its cultural, technical, commerce, historical, and scientific dimensions. In this presentation, Peter will aggregate and present the key ideas and themes that emerged from these two symposia in order to provide the audience with emerging themes, trends, and discoveries. Examples include: polycrop and local/regional planting and milling; "just-in time milling;" the concept of "craft to scale;" bread as a tool for healing, therapy, and community building via groups like "Bakers Without Borders" and the Bread Houses Network; bread a social signifier; debunking baking myths; new gluten-free technologies and the sprouted grain movement.
