About the event

Bakers and bread lovers! Please join me for an exciting look at the history of bread in witchcraft and magic. 

For the uninitiated, bread is humble, as commonplace as a sunrise. Bread is an everyday staple of most human lives on earth, and in many ways, is a food responsible for allowing humans to build the complex societies we have. Within this mundane ritual, however, lies a vast history of magical technique, and a chemical, biological marvel that has fascinated chefs and magicians alike for millenia. To bread, and to the grain plants which make this substance possible, we as humans owe very, very much. 

This lecture will draw from my personal research, as well as my first book, The Witch's Feast: A Kitchen Grimoire, which looks at the tools & techniques of culinary magic throughout history, considering what a modern practice of kitchen witchcraft might look like today. In this lecture, we will focus our gaze on bread & baking, looking at the cakes, loaves, buns, and bakes of witches past, and the significance of grains and bread in culinary magic and mysticism. We will explore :

  • The importance of bread in the development of human culture
  • Bread in magical / religious traditions of the ancient world
  • Gods and spirits of bread and bakers
  • Ceremonial bread charms and bread folklore of the middle ages
  • Bread holidays, festivals, and sabbats
  • Bread as flesh, as effigy of the divine

This event will be recorded for all ticketholders. If you miss our live class, recordings will be sent along afterward.
