Meet Stanley Ginsberg, author of The Rye Baker and sample locally-sourced and baked breads from CBI’s Jennifer Lapidus and Scott Unfried.

Lapidus is the former owner of Natural Bridge Bakery – a woodfired brick-oven bakery producing Flemish naturally leavened breads. She currently owns and manages Carolina Ground Flour Mill, which connects farmers and bakers throughout the Southeast. Unfried attended the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco and apprenticed with some of the Bay Area’s best bakeries before moving east and founding the Flat Rock Village Bakery in Flat Rock, NC. He is also now co-owner of Fletcher Village Bakery in Fletcher, NC, and West First Wood-Fired Pizza in downtown Hendersonville.
This event is free and open to the public.
