The KITCHEN at the Boston Public Market is honored to welcome Jason Bond, Chef and Owner of award-winning Bondir Restaurant in Cambridge. This very special hands-on baking class is held in collaboration with the Oldways Whole Grains Council, a non-profit helping people rediscover shared cultural traditions through food.
In this hands-on class, attendees will learn Chef Bond's secrets to baking the perfect loaf of bread - one of the hallmarks of his popular Cambridge restaurant. Guided by Chef Bond you’ll create two from-scratch loaves of bread to finish baking at home, plus made a cultured butter from scratch, and increase your comfort in the kitchen through new skills, techniques, and flavor profiles. You'll also enjoy his fresh baked breads with a generous spread of local cheeses and other finger foods from Boston Public Market farmers and artisans.
Join us to bake side-by-side with one of Boston's most prestigious chef heroes who is committed to highlighting New England’s local farmers, fishermen and artisans on his menus! In this lively, hands-on cooking class you’ll learn how to utilize the produce and products of the farmers and artisans of the Boston Public Market.
In addition to learning a new cooking style, you'll enjoy tastes of three local New England wines that pair perfectly with recipes we’ll be making, courtesy of The Massachusetts Wine Shop.

Jason grew up in Wyoming and Kansas and moved to the East Coast in 1995, after studying music at Kansas State University, to pursue a culinary career. He was raised around farming and preserving the harvest, and this “root-cellar” style has shaped the food he prepares today. Jason has worked and learned from many passionate and idealistic chefs over the past 30 years, and has worked in environments ranging from slow-smoked BBQ to Relais & Châteaux properties. Today he focuses on developing a network of food purveyors whose goals are to steward the environment and produce the best quality vegetable, fish, or meat in the world.
Jason works directly with producers to find interesting vegetables and rare breeds of livestock and strives to combine traditional and modern techniques to prepare honest and flavorful food. Chef Bond opened Bondir Cambridge in November 2010.
