We [everyone I think] had a ball at the Kneading Conference West. There have been a couple of blog posts about it
I had 2 shared sessions. One with Lee Glass on science and testing that was remarkably well attended with enthusiastic bakers. The second was with Leslie Mackie of Macrina bakeries in Seattle on barley in bread that was also well attended by an enthusiastic audience [the promise of warm soft-pretzels was too much for them!].
