White Sonora Wheat: A Heritage Grains Workshop for Arizona Bakers and Brewers

Monday, February 18, 2013
12 - 2 pm

You are invited to participate in a workshop to learn from colleagues about the heritage grain, white Sonora wheat. The white Sonora wheat is one of the oldest surviving wheat varieties anywhere in North America. The objective of the workshop is to introduce the white Sonora wheat to bakers, brewers, pastry chefs, tortilla makers, and others. Current users of this heritage grain will share its culinary characteristics so you can incorporate it in to your own baking or brewing.

A light lunch will be provided. Space is limited. Please RSVP by February 15 to Vanessa Bechtol, (520) 882-4405 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
