Supper & Conversation: My Life and Loaves at Trill Farm, Devon

November 5, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Andrew Whitley

Scotland The Bread Chairman Andrew Whitley is the Speaker for Trill Farm’s Supper & Conversation

Talk Title – My Life and Loaves

Six loaves, from Seneca’s white to sourdough rye, nestle in Andrew Whitley’s knapsack, providing food for thought on his life’s journey. In a ‘conceptual fermentation’ entitled My Life and Loaves he ponders how a fascination with Russian language and literature led to life as an artisan baker, organic grower, campaigner for real bread and champion of diversity against monocultures of minds and grains.

About the speaker

Andrew started the organic Village Bakery in Cumbria in the 1970s and is founder of Bread Matters Ltd. He wrote the seminal Bread Matters and the best-selling DO Sourdough. He has an MSc in Food Policy from City University London and is credited with ‘changing the way we think about bread’ (BBC Food & Farming Awards). He co-founded the Real Bread Campaign in 2008. He is now chair of Scotland The Bread, an action research and training charity that grows and mills diverse, nutrient-dense cereals in Fife with the aim of creating a healthy, fair and sustainable grain and bread supply.
