Roll up Roll up- We made the Argus newspaper for our recent Bread Fayre as part of our Breaking Bread project! Our wonderful volunteer Lynn Tye who works at The Keep county archive is in the picture.
A GOOD baker will always rise to the occasion – and that’s what organisers (Strike a Light) of a bread fayre did at a special workshop event. The fayre graced Brighton’s Open Market on Saturday with a selection of talks and workshops on all things bread baking.
As well as tasty dough treats and stalls, youngsters and their families were treated to storytelling activities and how-to guides on making brilliant batches of bread.
Traders were also invited to contribute to the event. They included cheery duo the Dough Brothers, who brought tasty offerings, and Alex Moran of Daily-bread.org.uk
Some footage from a recent bespoke baking workshop run by our baker Alex Moran with Brighton charity Euro-Mernet (set up to promote good inter-community and inter-cultural relations in the Mediterranean regions of Europe) for Strike a Light.
The group made olive and orange bread with lots of olive oil – very mediterranean in flavour and very nice indeed!
