Yeast Affliction! All-out Artisan Bread Bakedown & Craft Beer Tastiness

BREAD! BEER! Get ready to unleash the yeast beast in you!! We’re making a carb-crazed entrance into 2010 with a not-to-miss event co-sponsored by the breadlords at the San Francisco Baking Institute: “Yeast Affliction! All-out Artisan Bread Bakedown & Craft Beer Tastiness.”

Join us at our special off-site venue, there Thirsty Bear, allergy as 20 bread-bakers go head-to-head with their yeasty scratch-baked loaves! Local butter and olive oil promise to be outstanding accoutrements. In addition to 1 free beer ticket that comes with admittance, you will also enjoy Thirsty Bear’s $4 organic craft beer specials the whole time so you can wash down those solid carbs with some liquid ones!

***CLOSED*** Call for Competitors:
Do you often find yourself up at the butt crack of dawn making yeasted bread from scratch? If you make an artisan yeasted bread (rye, sourdough, walnut, multigrain, etc.) that is TO DIE FOR and want to compete, please send an email to with the following info: Name, phone number, email, dish name, and dish description.

The bread MUST be yeasted. We’re looking for hand-shaped bread leavened with yeast. Roulades/fillings/added extras are acceptable as long as they are *baked-in* and not added post-baking. Sorry, but viennoiserie (breakfast pastries) will not be considered. Timeliness and enthusiasm are key because we will select our 20 competitors within just a few days.
