Bakery Open House Saturday June 25

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DeRego’s Bread in Starkville, MS To Participate in Annual Bakery Open House Sponsored by The Bread Bakers Guild of America

June 2016, Sonoma, CA – DeRego’s Bread in Starkville, MS will be one of over 35 bakeries participating in The Bread Bakers Guild of America’s 6th Annual Bakery Open House on June 25.  Guild member bakeries in 23 US states will take part in the open house, which is part of The Guild’s 2016 event series, Bread Uprising.

The Guild-Wide Bakery Open House was conceived as a way to bring communities to their bakeries, as well as to champion the cause for locally made bread.  

“The more you learn about bread the more exciting it becomes to eat it,” says Troy DeRego, owner and head baker. “I am always excited to talk to people about fresh-milled whole grains, natural leavening and why a long slow fermentation makes bread that is so good and good for you.” 

The Open House will take place from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm on Saturday June 25th. There will be demonstrations each hour along with presentations about sourdough and baking with fresh-milled whole-grain flours. Visitors to the bakery will have a chance to sample a variety of artisan breads, pastries and crackers. 

The Bread Bakers Guild of America led the bread renaissance that occurred during the evolution of high-quality artisan foods in 1990s America, a time when Americans began to learn about crusty, well-fermented hearth breads, flaky laminated croissants, and Danishes. Since then, The Guild has dedicated itself to promoting artisan baking education, and the result is evident in many communities across the nation, where people can enjoy a hearty pain au levain or delicate brioche.

The Guild has close to 1,900 members in the United States and 23 other countries, including Canada, France, Colombia, Turkey, Fiji, Australia, and Singapore.  Guild membership benefits include a cutting-edge quarterly magazine, Bread Lines, access to baking formulas from Bread Bakers Guild Team USA, Guild classes, and national events,  and a dynamic online forum for the exchange of baking knowledge.  

Bread Uprising is part of The Guild’s mission to “shape the skills and knowledge of the artisan baking community.”  To see the full 2016 regional events calendar, please visit www.bbga.org. 

The Bread Bakers Guild of America is a non-profit organization comprised of professional bakers, farmers, millers, suppliers, educators, students, home bakers, technical experts, and bakery owners and managers who work together to support the principle and the practice of producing the highest quality baked goods.  It was formed in 1993 to shape the skills and knowledge of the artisan baking community through education.
