Father Dominic

When: Sun., June 11, 1 p.m. 2017

Bread has long been regarded as "the staff of life," which makes Father Dominic the wielder of the staff. The Converse-wearing, smile-sporting Benedictine monk has long popularized the art of baking bread in homes thanks to his former TV career and his ongoing series of books. His newest book, Baking Secrets of the Bread Monk, continues his work with advice for beginners, tricks for advanced bakers and a handy list of substitutions that can replace common ingredients when you come up short. Fr. Dominic visits the Missouri History Museum (Lindell Boulevard and DeBaliviere Avenue; www.mohistory.org) at 1 p.m. today to discuss bread, baking and the satisfaction you get from feeding friends and family. Admission is free.
