Hello everyone!
This is really truly going to rock. Not lip service. And it's an overdue chance for peeps in our group to just gather and bask in the light of bread and accoutrement.

Glenn Harrell of Say Cheese in Silverlake is, "pairing" (it's not a pairing- it's a triumvirate of some kind- someone invent a word here....) seasonal grains with wine with cheese in y'all's honor. It would add to the whole shebang if you brought a loaf along with you but no obligation!

This event is a gratis party in honor of LABB's own Elisa Callow. She is the fabulous cookbook author, Angelena and bread mover and shaker behind The Urban Forager and she will be on-site signing books and talking shop. See her own event posting here:

Please allow your mouth to water over the dishes being served on this date that came straight from Elisa's book:

• Lavash crackers (with herbs and chiles)
• Home-made crème fraiche
• Various home-made jams and butters
• Pate Maison
• Polenta Cakes
• Nut Cookies and Almond Cocoa Nibs Cookies

[This is a re-post from an earlier event because the venue and times have shifted a bit.]


Join author Elisa Callow, photographer Ann Cutting, featured baker Masako Yatabe Thomsen, and Say Cheese’s Glenn Harrell for a celebratory Bread and Toppings party at one of L.A.’s great food emporiums—Say Cheese. Home crafted jams and marmalades and Say Cheese’s curated platters of charcuterie and seasonal cheeses and sour dough breads will complement the book signing of The Urban Forager: Culinary Exploring & Cooking on L.A.’s Eastside. Say Cheese and L.A. Bread Bakers are highlighted along with many other specialty stores and markets from the eastside.

Masako and Elisa will share a hefty sampling The Urban Forager’s featured desserts baked with a variety of freshly milled whole grains.
