The amazing alchemy of flour, water, salt and yeast became an ongoing obsession, culminating in serious study and training with renowned bakers Stefan Senders of Wide Awake Bakery in Trumansburg NY, Jeffrey Hamelman of King Arthur Flour in VT, andCecile Piot of Pain, Partage et Fantaisie in Mantes-la-Jolie, France. Lori now owns Going with the Grain Bakery in Harrisville, PA, and at her bakery they know that you care about where your bread comes from, who grew the flour, and how your bread was made. The small batch, long-fermented bakes ensure the highest quality and flavor. Local flours and grains contribute fresher flavors and aromas and also retain more nutritionin each loaf. Simple ingredients+ hand crafted techniques = Real Bread.
