BAKER'S CORNER: BREAD BAKING 101

BAKE BREAD WITH LOCAL CAIRNSPRING FLOURS

Jerilyn is a lifelong baker and learner. You may have heard of her as the co-creator of the recipe for the wildly successful Cinnabon World Famous Cinnamon Rolls.  Since then, Jerilyn’s talents have taken her down many paths including cook, baker, restaurateur, product development consultant and frequent leader of citizen diplomacy missions to Vietnam. Today, Jerilyn is a passionate advocate for the Pacific Northwest grain renaissance.

There’s a resurgence of interest in new science and traditional plant breeding to bring wheat-growing back to the fertile Skagit and Willamette Valleys. In the Skagit Valley, The Bread Lab is doing ground-breaking research and offering internationally famous annual symposiums.  Cairnspring Mills is reinventing the local flour mill by stone milling grains grown by local farmers. Yes, local milling is back!  Jerilyn, as Baking Consultant and Board Member to Cairnspring Mill, will share her knowledge of how local ‘identity preserved grains’ can be milled into flour with superior flavor, nutrition and baking properties, and she’ll show you how to use these local flours to make amazing breads and rolls.

As you watch Jerilyn demo, you’ll gain the wealth of information that she has to offer.  Then the fun begins as you roll up your sleeves and make her Grandmother’s cinnamon rolls (this butter and egg enriched dough is the same dough Jerilyn developed for her awesome cinnamon roll recipe) and Whole Grain Edison Honey Butter Loaf (this sumptuous, super-delicious loaf made from organic hard white spring wheat grown in the Bow/ Edison area is surprisingly easy to put together and has a beautiful flavor and crust).

Enjoy a meat and cheese board with house made accoutrements to nibble on as you bake.

Jessica Cantlin: Latitude

Winston Wächter Fine Art is pleased to announce Jessica Cantlin’s first main gallery solo exhibition, Latitude.

Photographer and travel writer Jessica Cantlin ventures to remote locations of the globe, capturing the striking beauty of areas most of us will never visit. Her endless sense of wonder and dedication to the road not taken creates dramatic narratives in her work where weather, land, light and sky act as characters and guides. By documenting the simultaneous peacefulness and dramatic tension of these tenuous regions, Cantlin helps us appreciate and respect the power and importance of the natural world. Cantlin’s imagery reminds us of the fragility of the earth and of the urgency to confront climate change, and all we stand to lose.

The works included in Latitude are from the artist’s recent travels to Iceland and Lençóis Maranhenses, Brazil.  A stark contrast in location, Cantlin’s photographs explore the ephemeral quality of light and color in regions that are susceptible to dramatic and transient weather conditions. As part of her continuing study of the role that weather plays in how we experience the landscape, these photographs act as witness to the sublime beauty found in some of these most vulnerable environments.

Jessica Cantlin is a fine art photographer and writer. After leaving her career as a successful attorney she searched for ways to “feed her wanderlust.” By creating the popular blog under the same name, Cantlin is able to document her travels and share her experiences with the hope of inspiring others to appreciate the beauty surrounding them.

McMahon’s work has been shown both nationally and internationally at venues including Crane Arts, Philadelphia; The Pacific Northwest College of Art, Portland; Pierogi Boiler Room, New York; G-Fine Arts, Washington, D.C.; Bemis Center For Contemporary Arts, Omaha; Suyama Space, Seattle; T & H Gallery, Boston, Tang Contemporary, Beijing, China; Practice Gallery, Philadelphia, PA; DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, MA; among others.
