As the year comes close to an end, it is a time to reflect and celebrate our holidays. As a retail baker, this means extra business, however on a personal level it is a time for us to gather with our families to share some good times together. I would like to extend my warmest holiday wishes for a prosperous New Year to all of you in the baking industry. It is a pleasure to be a part of this Association, and all of you feel like a part of my extended family.


My condolences are with the Weber family on the passing of Fritz Weber. Fritz was a past president and a very active member of our Association.


Happy Holidays,


President Joe Gifoli

NYS Workshop - CIA -October 2010

On October 24th, our member bakers headed to the CIA in Hyde Park, NY, for a workshop.

Always eager to learn new formulas, new methods, new trends in baking, our members were treated first to an informal wine tasting dinner on Sunday evening at Santo Stefano Wine Masking Club. Not only were treated to in-house made wines without sulfates, but dinner as well. Monday brought us to the CIA where the first workshop was given by CMB Francisco J. Migoya, anthor of two books: "The Modern Cafe" and "Frozen Desserts". He demonstrated a different take on the familiar danish, where the pastry is made with pre-baked laminated dough and then filled with various fillings. He then went on to the popular brioche, baking both in rectangle tins. The end results were excellent providing a more flaky and crispy product.

Our second workshop was headed by CMB Peter P. Greweling who delighted the audience with confections for the Bakery. He made Almond Dragees, Pecan Pralines and Citrus Confit. Not only were we given formulas, but the confections to taste and take home.

Lunch followed at the school cafe and the outing ended on a very sweet not..
