Hole In The Wall


Wheat or White?



Food Terms

Whole wheat
Grains that contain all of their bran, germ and endosperm. Refined grains, such as white flour used in white bread, contain little if any germ or bran, and therefore significantly less fiber and fewer nutrients than whole grains.


Landrace wheat
A genetic grandfather wheat that has been introduced around the world and given birth to new geographically-specific varieties wherever it has landed.


Heritage grain
A heritage grain is from a seed that embodies thousands of years of unbroken human-plant co-evolution, effort and reverence.
– Andrew Still


Identity preserved grain
Labeling that protects the characteristics that define a unique grain or crop, as enhanced by a specific place, farming practice and milling process.

 TartineのChad RobertsonやCraig Ponsfordが登壇するのも興味あるが、Olivetoの昼食付き、というのも心惹かれる。でもこれってやっぱりプロのパン職人向けの会議なんだろうな。
