How Bread Making Can Nourish The Body And Soul

February 16, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Bread making usually results in a delicious, healthful food product, but the process itself can also be food for the soul. St. John’s Bakery, a Toronto shop adjacent to a local Catholic mission, employs immigrants, recovering addicts and disabled people in the production of high quality bread. The process is transforming lives with “job training and the simple alchemy of bread, yeast and water”. According to Father Roberto Ubertino, “a daily miracle takes place” in the conversion of those simple ingredients. The organic, artisanal breads – baguettes, round loaves of country rye, and cilantro olive breads – are sold at premium prices at markets, restaurants and specialty stores in Toronto. But the goal of the bakery is not cash profit. It’s sustainable fulfillment of a "social mandate".
