Dewey Hall’s Sourdough Bread Contest A community event celebrating bakers, sourdough bread, cheese, wine, and beer Friday, March 15th, 5:30PM-7:30PM Dewey Memorial Hall, 91 Main Street, Sheffield, MA Tickets as follows: Bakers: $15 to register and attend Spectators: $30 (beverages included) *children 12 and under are free (reservations are requested) Head over to Dewey Hall for our sourdough bread-baking competition on Friday, March 15th! We are celebrating this art by giving local home bakers a chance to show their skill, and offering attendees a fun culinary experience. The origins of sourdough bread date to around 14,000 years ago, according to archeological evidence. The use of yeast, however, is relatively recent in the history of bread making, dating to the past 150 years. Before that, sourdough culture was the only leavening agent—and that traditional method has experienced a resurgence in home baking. Whether you are a bread baker or a bread lover, this event is for you! Bakers will enter two full-size loaves of bread, one for tasting/judging and one to be raffled off. Attendees will be invited to sample the contestants' loaves of bread along with complementary cheese boards from Rubiner’s Cheesemongers and wine, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages provided by DARE Bottleshop. Attendees will also have the opportunity to win loaves of freshly baked sourdough bread and other prizes via a raffle—please bring cash for tickets, which benefit Dewey Hall. Our emcee for the evening is Perry Grebin, a graphic designer and artist for screen and stage, and live music will be performed by the Michael Junkins Duo. The culinary judges will be Jean-Francois Bizalion of Bizalion's Fine Foods, Richard Bourdon of Berkshire Mountain Bakery, and Sarah Reynolds North of Found Bread. This year’s Sourdough Bread contest is preceded by a virtual Sourdough Bread Workshop with Richard Bourdon of Berkshire Mountain Bakery and hosted by Sarah Reynolds North of Found Bread. The workshop will be held on Wednesday, February 28th, from 5:30PM to 7 PM via Zoom. Pre-registration is required: https://secure.givelively.org/event/dewey-memorial-hall-inc/dough-talk-with-richard-bourdon-and-sarah-reynolds-north Dewey Memorial Hall was built in 1887 by The Sheffield Friendly Union, a community organization with the mission “to promote kindly feelings, cheerfulness, and intelligence.” This event is supported in part by AutoBahn, DARE Bottleshop, and Rubiner’s Cheesemongers. Dewey Hall is producing this event with the help of committee chair Evelyn Battaglia (Food Writer/Cookbook Editor/Berkshire Edge Special Projects Editor) and volunteer Sherri Gorelick (avid home baker and 2022 contest entrant!), who have offered their culinary expertise to the organizational team.
