Leading UK baker set to deliver masterclass at the Northern Restaurant & Bar Show 2018.

Aidan Monks, North West based multi-award-winning artisan baker and World Bread Awards Judge will deliver a chef’s masterclass at this year’s Northern Restaurant & Bar Show (NRB), at 11.30am, on 20th March.

If you’re interested in well-being, fermentation and the importance of the flavour and nutrition of bread this is the live demo for you…

Aidan, a former chef turned artisan baker, will take to the Market Kitchen stage to chat about his culinary journey and his inspirations, how to craft the perfect bread starter and he may even sneak in some insights into the art of making better bread…

Aidan’s approach to every aspect of food is based an incredible depth of knowledge, experience and constant study. Inspired whilst studying at the College of Culinary Arts, in Boston, Massachusetts and later working with bakers in France, Aidan has continued to develop his skills and knowledge.

As you might imagine he spends every free moment researching, adapting and putting old methodology into practice, when it comes to the breads he creates. Which he constantly seeks to improve by adding new thought processes and approaches into the mix, such as making use of raw milks, ancient heritage grains and double fermentation within his breads – he truly is Lovingly Artisan – a great food ambassador for the North West of England, one who is having a huge impact on the regional and national bread artisan baking industry.

So, pop along and join founder of the Lovingly Artisan bakery, Aidan Monks on Tuesday 20 March at 11.30am as he demos on the Market Kitchen stage.

Or catch him and his team at stand M9 at the Northern of England’s leading hospitality show at Manchester Central, on 20 and 21 March 2018.

If you’re involved with hospitality in the North of England, looking for new products, seeking inspiration or just wanting to get ahead of the curve, you need to head to NRB 2018! With 275 exhibitors and 65 live food and drink demos, the two-day event is jam-packed full of discovery and inspiration…
