Baking is literally our bread and butter in New York City, making up the majority of food manufacturing business within all five boroughs.
Join us on December 8th for a behind-the-scenes look at the baking industry, plus a taste of homemade croissants, bagels, and fresh bread! Guest speakers include Gene Davidovich from Davidovich Bakery, Uliks Fehmiu from Pain D'Avignon, Lee Wellington from the Urban Manufacturing Alliance, and a special guest from the new Eataly in downtown Manhattan, which has a special focus on bread.
We'll learn what it takes to operate a food production and distribution business in New York City, and the unique role that public markets -- like Essex Street Market -- play in supporting the baking industry. The evening will start with a tasting from Davidovich Bakery and Pain D'Avignon from 6:30-7pm, and then a panel discussion from 7-8pm.
