With the art of artisanal breads on the rise, baking fans will not want to miss the return of Father Dominic Garramone on Nine PBS this Saturday, December 2, at 5:30 p.m., for the special How to Be a Breadhead: A Beginner’s Guide to Baking. Father Dominic will be live in Nine’s Monsanto Studio for an interview during the broadcast.
Father Dominic was the host of the acclaimed public television cooking series, Breaking Bread with Father Dominic, on Nine PBS from 1999–2001. The program, an instant hit with viewers across the country when it debuted, was produced by the Nine Network in its studios in Grand Center. The beloved series, which ran for three seasons, demystified the art of bread baking and simplified the process so that anyone could enjoy making and sharing fresh-baked breads.
A dedicated baker is affectionately known as a “breadhead.” In How to Be a Breadhead: A Beginner’s Guide to Baking, the funny and friendly Father Dominic imparts his passion for bread making as a way to refresh the mind, force us to slow down, and connect with family and friends. He shows viewers how to make simple dough and turn it into braided loaves, flatbreads, pretzel breads, breakfast treats, and more.
Father Dominic, a Benedictine monk at Saint Bede Abbey in Peru, IL, is the author of six cookbooks. How to Be a Breadhead: A Beginner’s Guide to Baking was produced and directed by St. Louisan Bill Streeter, organizer of  the Lo-Fi Cherokee event and producer and director of the documentary Brick by Chance and Fortune, about the history of the St. Louis clay and brick industry. M
