A Hearthside Chat with Apollonia Poilâne & Kristine Borok

As part of our June Bread Celebration, this program has been donated by the contributors.  All proceeds will directly benefit the mission, members and programs of the Guild, and support the craft, culture and business of artisan baking.

June 26, 2023 via Zoom

12:00PM to 1:00PM EDT

Apollonia is baker and CEO for Poilâne, an internationally-acclaimed, family-run bakery founded in Paris in 1932.  She began apprenticing in the bakery at the age of 16, and took over its operation at age 18, when her parents were killed in an accident.  Apollonia now oversees 160 employees at five locations across France and London.  She wrote a cookbook, released in 2020, for skilled and novice bakers called Poilâne: The Secrets of the World-Famous Bread Bakery.  Through all of her work, Apollonia has maintained the traditions and spirit of Poilâne bakers who came before her while putting her own modern stamp on the bakery.

Apollonia will join Kristine Borok, Guild Board member and Chief Operating Officer of Hot Bread Kitchen, for a conversation about maintaining tradition and breaking with it, and inspiring a love of the craft of bread baking in bakery teams, and in customers.
