The winter workshop included some excellent presentations by Puratos and Dawn.  The Puratos presentation given by Douglas Jump emphasized buying and marketing trends.  Among them was expressing your passion for your products thru storyselling.  Telling a unique story about a product helps to interest consumers into purchasing it.  Also, consumers are leaning towards purchasing healthier and good tasting items.  Quality and meal mobility were also concerns today.  www.tastetomorrow.com can be a helpful source for bakers.

The Dawn representative spoke about impulse buying, packaging and the tastry formulas and recipes available thru Dawn Foods.

Chef Robert Bennett from Classic Cake and his assistant Sandy Oster from Barry Callebaut distributed recipes for chocolate molding, truffles and mousse.  Their expertise and wonderful samples wowed us all!

Other demonstrations were presented by Genevieve Poitievien from Julie Bashore's Sugar Arts Institute and Marie Kane from Inspired Foods.

Roseann Atkins from Decorated Desserts of Plainview volunteered to help with demonstrations. 

All in all, the NJBBT hosted a wonderful Winter Workshop, enjoyed by many!  Thank you NJBBT and all presentors!

Fresh Apples -From Intercounty Bakers

Bakers Joke Corner
Working hard in the bakery requires stepping back and laughing once in a while.
Funeral Baking
An old man was on his death bed. He had only hours to live when he
suddenly smelled the scent of fresh buns wafting into his room.
Aaahhhh... he loved fresh buns more than anything else in the world.

With his last bit of energy, he pulled himself out of bed... down the
stairs and into the kitchen he went. There was his beloved wife,
kneading the dough for a new batch. As he reached for one of the fresh
steaming buns, he got smacked across the back of his hand by the wooden
spoon his wife was holding.

"Leave them alone!" she said. "They're for the funeral!"
