Robert Penn – Slow Rise

Discover the fascinating story of our relationship with bread – from the domestication of wheat in the Fertile Crescent at the dawn of civilisation, to the rise of mass-produced loaves and the resurgence in home-baking today.

Over the course of a year, Robert Penn, author of Slow Rise, learned how to plant, harvest, thresh and mill his own wheat, in order to bake bread for his family. Gathering knowledge and wisdom from experts around the world – farmers on the banks of the Nile, harvesters in the American Midwest and Parisian boulangers – he explains the joy of making and eating bread with a deep appreciation of the skill and patience required to cultivate its key ingredient.

Join Robert for a celebration of the millennia-old craft of breadmaking, and find out how it is woven into the story of humanity.
