With the art of artisanal breads on the rise, baking fans will not want to miss the return of Father Dominic Garramone for the special How to Be a Breadhead: A Beginner’s Guide to Baking. 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. 

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.
