Jim Lahey, Sullivan Street Bakery

Saturday, December 2, 2017, 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm

Stop by the CUESA Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, followed by a book signing hosted by our friends at Book Passage.

Jim Lahey studied sculpting at SUNY Stonybrook and the School of Visual Arts but soon headed off to Italy to work with bakers in northeastern and central Italy. He opened the Sullivan Street Bakery in New York City in 1994. His pizza restaurant, Co., opened in Manhattan in 2009. He has received two James Beard Awards and is the author of My Bread and My Pizza. He lives in New York City with his wife and co-author, Maya Joseph.

With THE SULLIVAN STREET BAKERY COOKBOOK, Jim Lahey and Maya Joseph present a clear, illustrated guide to making no-knead sourdough bread. The Sullivan Street Bakery Cookbook also provides recipes for many of the most beloved café dishes served at Sullivan Street Bakery. These easy, elegant, Italian-inspired favorites include egg sandwiches and simple salads, roasted meats and vegetables, and of course the full panoply of baked goods: pizzas, pastries, cakes, cookies, and Lahey’s coveted recipe for panettone. An essential book for home bakers and lovers of Italian food, The Sullivan Street Bakery Cookbook delivers the flavors of a bakery Ruth Reichl once called “a church of bread.”

All demos take place in the CUESA Classroom (under the white tents in front of the Ferry Building) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
