WheatStalk 2014 is Coming!
When you gather bakers together, a good time is guaranteed. When you add a vibrant city, meaningful education delivered by talented teachers, and fun activities, you can be sure that memories will be made.
Mark your calendar for September 18-21, 2014, when WheatStalk will be returning to the world-class facility at Kendall College in Chicago. Registration will be on Thursday, September 18, followed by three days of classes.
Join us and play with fire in the wood-fired oven, explore the possibilities of specialty shaped loaves, learn how to create modern breads with ancient grains, create tantalizing breakfast pastries and artistic showpieces that dazzle. Are you eager to understand flour better? Want to learn more about the microbakery revolution or
the baking evolution? We promise; we will offer something for everyone.
Like WheatStalk 2012, WheatStalk 2014 is sure to fill quickly. We can’t wait to learn along with you!
WheatStalk 2012 was a great success!
WheatStalk 2012 was the joining together of member bakers, millers and growers to learn and improve techniques, share ideas and build community.
The Bread Baker’s Guild of America presented its national bread conference on June 28-30, 2012, and was the keystone of our Cereal Series of 2012.
This sold-out, members-only event featured three educationally packed days with hands-on classes, demos, lectures and oven building taught by the industry leaders and old friends.
Kendall College in Chicago graciously hosted this event. Located in the heart of the heartland, this venue was easily accessible for many Guild members.

|Volker Baumann||Tim Huff||Didier Rosada|
|Tod Bramble||Philippe Le Corre||Frank Sally|
|Jory Downer||Leslie Mackie||Amy Scherber|
