July 7, 2014, Udora, ON – Peter Jacobs, a
certified master baker with 35 years of experience, has made his dream a
reality by
creating a workshop for bakers. The multi-purpose space is designed to compliment Jacobs role as a sales manager for Lesaffre. 

Jacobs invested a significant sum to turn part of his
garage space at his country home into a well-equipped R&D lab. Anchored by
a massive butcher-block table on wheels, the workshop is outfitted with ovens, a
sheeter, fridges, a large mixer and other small appliances to serve a variety
of tasks. He was patient and lucky in his equipment acquisitions, saving a
substantial amount by purchasing used. Jacobs used his keen baker’s eye to leave no detail unturned. The
walls are made of cooler panels, and the heating and air conditioning can be
finely controlled for optimal temperature setting.   

Advertisment

The lab can be rented out as a workspace by
bakers, for presentation purposes or for R&D. In his spare time, Jacobs is available to do
private instruction and consulting with bakers on specific product challenges.
He is also open to teaching amateur bakers, and would like to use the space for
events such as couples culinary lessons as time outside his job permits. Various costs to rent the space or
receive tutelage can be negotiated directly with Jacobs.

spent June 27 participating in a workshop
with Jacobs that spanned the production of German beer bread, Ciabatta,
baguette, brioches, croissants and even a cake for his grandson’s birthday. The
day demonstrated the versatility of the space, which could also be used for
chocolate.    

Jacobs will be sharing his master skills by
giving a dough demonstration on flavour and fermentation,
sponsored by Lesaffre & Red Star Yeast, at the upcoming
Canadian Pizza Show on Oct. 27 in Mississauga, Ont. To register for this free
