Scotland’s first Real Bread Festival comes to Fife

The first-ever Scottish Real Bread Festival will be held at The Bowhouse in St Monan’s, Fife, this Saturday, 25 February, organised by the award-winning local charity Scotland the Bread.

This new festival will celebrate real bread with a line-up packed with workshops, talks, hands-on activity and the awards ceremony for the Scottish Bread Championship 2023.

Rounding off Real Bread Week, the timetable includes activities for all the family, from bread-heads who want to debate grain biodiversity to little ones who can have a blast threshing and milling grain at The Big Thrash.

The Festival will open with a concept launch of ‘The People’s Bread’: a call to action and demonstration of the easiest way to make the healthiest Real Bread for everyone. There will be tastings, free sourdough starter and recipes to take away.

Festival visitors are invited to the premiere of a new short film, ‘Celebrating Scottish grain, flour and bread’, which highlights the skilled craftsmanship of Scotland’s artisan bakers and the flour they use, as well as introducing Scotland’s two key integrated growing-and-milling innovators: Scotland the Bread in St Monans and Mungoswells in East Lothian.

An ‘Honest Crust’ keynote speech and panel discussion led by Chris Young, Co-ordinator of the Real Bread Campaign, will provide a timely opportunity to hear from someone who hit the headlines recently. Young’s forensic response to the newly released ‘UK Baking Industry Code of Practice for the Labelling of Sourdough Bread and Rolls’ described it as a 'cheats charter’ and a ‘sourfaux code’.

The day will see a variety of Real Bread and artisanal food stalls for visitors to browse, grain art workshops including cyanotype photography and straw weaving, and songs and stories celebrating a living bread culture.

The Scottish Bread Championship is Scotland’s only Real Bread competition. Founded by Wendy Barrie of Scottish Food Guide and Andrew Whitley of Scotland the Bread in 2017, the Championship is newly relocated to The Bowhouse. The awards ceremony will take place at the Festival.

The Scottish Real Bread Festival is free to enter, though donations to Scotland the Bread’s work are encouraged.

More information can be found on Scotland the Bread’s event page for the day.

I am really loving the theme/design of your site.

Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems?

A number of my blog readers have complained about my

website not working correctly in Explorer but

looks great in Opera. Do you have any recommendations to help

fix this problem?

about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it

important. A lot more people ought to read this and understand this side of the story.

I was surprised that you're not more popular because you surely have the gift.

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add

to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter

updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite

some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with

something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.

I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what

all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like

yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% sure.

Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from

an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal

but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm

not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?

Howdy! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I needed to

ask. Does operating a well-established blog such as yours require a massive amount work?

I am completely new to operating a blog but I do write

in my diary every day. I'd like to start a blog so I will be

able to share my own experience and feelings online.

Please let me know if you have any kind of

ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find

this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.

It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next

post, I will try to get the hang of it!

What you published made a bunch of sense. However,

what about this? what if you were to create a awesome headline?

I ain't saying your information is not good., however suppose you added a title that

grabbed folk's attention? I mean Add new comment | Artisan Food Law is kinda vanilla.

You might look at Yahoo's home page and see how they create post headlines to

get people interested. You might try adding a video or

a related picture or two to grab readers excited about everything've got to say.

In my opinion, it would make your blog a little livelier.
