The Educated Eater: Regionally Grown Grain

6:00 p.m.

You might weigh in heavily when it comes to your preference for butter, crisco, or lard in pie crusts, but do you ever wonder where the flour you use to roll out your perfect dough comes from, or how it might affect the quality of your pie? How would emmer wheat pasta taste? What kind of home-baked bread would locally grown spelt flour produce?In this edition of Greenmarket's quarterly panel discussion series, The Educated Eater, talk turns to regionally grown grain. Hear from a culinary historian, a grower, a miller, a baker, and a chef about the past, present, and future of grains grown in the Northeast. Greenmarket's June Russell moderates a discussion that explores the challenges and developments that will advance the availability and volume of local grains to the bakers, brewers, distillers, and chefs in our area.Speakers include: Nathan Leamy, Watson Fellow, home baker, and global grains expertDon Lewis, miller and baker, Wild Hive FarmAnton Earnhardt, grower, Lighting Tree FarmMichael Anthony, chef, Gramercy TavernJune Russell, moderator and farm inspections manager, GreenmarketThis event is sponsored in partnership by Greenmarket, which is a program of GrowNYC, and the Food Studies Program at The New School.
