Whats happening on the night? Josephine Plettenburg (Speltbakers), Joe Fitzmaurice (RiotRye) and Declan Ryan (Arbutus Bakery) all return to Highbank to continue the night of discussion and munching of real bread. For the first hour we’ll be hearing about their stories since the first gathering in January 2014 and exploring topics such as aggressive sourdoughs and the provenance and growing methods of the flours which each of them use. The second hour will be special.

They will be joined on stage by a number of other bakers including Patrick Ryan from Firehouse (Dublin) and Kemal Scarpello SlowFoodCo (Donegal) to launch Real Bread Ireland.

This is a new network to support and encourage real bread baking (by both bakeries and consumers) and to make it easier to identify and find. The bakers will be looking to discuss and debate how the new network should operate.
