Documenting the craft of artisan bakers who are challenging industrially made bread by fusing together contemporary food know-how with a new tradition of the crafted loaf.
A new funded project started this year working to create a printed and downloadable Area of Outstanding Bread guide and related drawing workshops up and down the east Suffolk coast of England.
Bread has been a staple food for over eight thousand years. Before the mass produced bread of the mid 1900's every culture crafted a local loaf, be it flat, tinned or hand-shaped. Today artisan bakers are challenging industrial and uniform bread. They are fusing tradition with contemporary food know-how to create a new tradition of the crafted loaf.
BREADEAR was formed in 2016 by food anthropologist and illustrator Bee Farrell to document and celebrate unique and regional bread. True to the artisan baker, who only uses high quality, environmentally responsible and local ingredients, BREADEAR only uses the best ecologically certified card, inks and cloth from local ethical suppliers.
