What we're about

Have a passion for bread baking? Northwest Bread Bakers hosts gatherings for the amateur to the professional baker. Events will feature local grain farmers, millers, artisans, educators, manufacturers and of course bakers. This group is intentionally open to all and is designed to gather a variety of expertise in a spirit of mutual support to hone your baking skills, deliciously.

We are part of the good food movement, supporting the regional grain economy, helping new bakers learn the craft, lending support to start-up businesses, serving as a resource for the purchase of local grains and flours, sharing techniques and methods and getting conversations started through interesting programming. We care about the health of people and planet and look to advance both through the baking of delicious, nutritious bread.

A wide variety of events will be hosted up and down the Puget Sound corridor and a fee will be charged when necessary and simply to cover the costs of the event venue and speaker fee if there is one. All voices matter so please be sure to email us with suggestions on event venues, topics, or activities that interest you.

That's A Some Pizza! - Meet Will Grant, Award Winning Pizzaiolo

Everybody loves pizza and the best pizza begins with a sourdough crust. In this meet-up we meet celebrity Pizzaiolo, Will Grant. Will is inviting Northwest Bread Bakers to his Bainbridge Island pizzeria on Saturday, March 23rd. During this meetup hear all about how he prepared for the Caputo Cup competition in Atlanta taking home first place in non-traditional and second place in traditional pizza. These awards plus others, along with his Pizzaiolo Certification give us a special honor to learn from one of the best pizza makers in the country. Participants get to tour the kitchen, learn all about Will's sourdough maintenance and dough preparation techniques, we will make a few pizzas and of course eat a few pizzas. Following our meetup Will heads to Parma Italy for another competition and we'll all be able to say we knew him when. This meetup is limited to 20 people and carpooling is recommended. You want to catch the 9:35 Seattle Ferry to get to the restaurant on time. Anticipated costs: Ferry fee, beverages and to contribute for pizza.
