Scotland The Bread at Bowhouse September Food Weekend
September 14, 2019 @ 11:00 am - September 15, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
This #SourdoughSeptember our monthly appearance at Bowhouse Food Weekend will be supplemented by sourdough-making sessions and other workshops. Come along and learn how to make sourdough, pick up some #heritageflour to practice with at home, and fill the gaps in your baking kit with our books and equipment.
The harvest-themed market will be packed with traders literally selling the pick of the Scottish crop – hope to see you there!
In 2018 we first harvested our nutritious and traditional grains on Balcaskie Estate, where Bowhouse is based. These are now milled onsite to produce a range of flours that is nutritionally strong and good for the soil in which it is grown too. You’ll be able to watch our Zentrofan flour mill in action – the first in the UK. This is the ideal opportunity to find out more about the Real Bread movement and the difference between properly made bread and mass-produced loaves.
We are always grateful for volunteers to help support our stalls on market days. If you have a spare couple of hours and would be able to lend a hand bagging and selling flour, talking to people about Real Bread and earning our eternal thanks, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, we’ll be inviting as many people as possible to become shareholders in Bread for Good Community Benefit Society (which trades as Scotland The Bread) and thus support our work to change Scottish bread for good and all. Shareholders get one year’s subscription free which entitles them to 15% off the cost of flour.
