King Arthur Flour Celebrates Fall with Bakers' Harvest Festival in Norwich
Conference, Tasting Supper & Festival Feature Inspiration For Fall Baking
Norwich, Vermont – August 8, 2013 – King Arthur Flour invites the public to attend its first Bakers' Harvest Festival at the company's store, bakery/café, and baking education center in Norwich, VT The public celebration runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, September 7.
"We had so much fun celebrating our grand opening with customers last year that we thought we should welcome this year's baking season with another festive gathering," says Susan Miller, King Arthur Flour Baking Education Center director.
The celebration will include hands-on baking education, interactive activities for kids and adults, and our first-ever live baking competition - BakeRace: Apple Challenge - featuring amateur and professional bakers from among King Arthur Flour's employee-owners.
The festival will also feature live music by Vermont's own singer/songwriter Jon Gailmor, and the duo Cheronia performing French and Celtic dance tunes on accordion and fiddle.
Leading up to the public festivities, on September 5 and 6 King Arthur Flour will host a baking education conference as well as a tasting supper for pre-registered attendees. The conference features hands-on classes and seminars from King Arthur Flour's experts and special guest instructors, including Gesine Bullock-Prado, former White House Pastry Chef Roland Mesnier (as full of funny stories as he is of baking knowledge), and more.
The tasting supper, a fundraiser to benefit Hunger Free Vermont, is scheduled for Friday, September 6. Diners will savor specialties from the Upper Valley's most popular restaurants, enjoy a glass of wine or local brew, celebrate fresh foods, and - the icing on the cake - combat hunger in Vermont.
