MP would travel anywhere in Maine for good bread. This Saturday, the Maine Grain Alliance is hosting its annual bread fair with over 60 food vendors from across New England. Even though Skowhegan is an hour-plus drive, the promise of skilled bakers offering wood-fired pizza, decadent pastries, and crusty baguettes is enough for MP to get the family in the car and go.
If the promise of delicious breads and pastries weren’t enough, then all of the other fun events are certainly enticing. The talented folks at King Arthur Flour will be on hand to discuss their best baking tips. You’ll also find a children’s area, live music, and all the supplies home bakers love.
To celebrate the upcoming fair, Maine Grains in Skowhegan is offering a 5 lb. bag of their flour—made from locally grown, stoneground grains—to one lucky Cute Potato reader. All you need to do is tell us: where does your family go for good bread? We’ll choose a winner at random. Contest ends Friday, July 25. 2014 at noon EST. Good luck bakers!
