Utah Bakers Dozen

About me

Location Utah, United States
Introduction The Utah Bakers Dozen started in 2000, when a group of pastry chefs joined forces and donated their talents for Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation fundraiser. The Bakers Dozen desserts booth was an instant hit and helped raise thousands of dollars for Utah hunger programs. The Taste of the Nation tradition continues and The Utah Bakers Dozen’s booth is still the most popular one at the annual event. Share Our Strength was the catalyst for the Utah group, which began to meet for networking, educational demonstrations and field trips in 2002. Utah Bakers Dozen’s goal is to “raise the bar for the baking and pastry industry in Utah by strengthening and bringing awareness to our craft.” UBD has a steering committee of volunteers who brainstorm meeting ideas organize the meetings. All who are interested are welcome. The unique challenge of baking at high altitude is something Utah Bakers Dozen members share: the mean elevation of Utah is 6300 feet, with Salt Lake City at about 4500 feet and Park City at 7200 feet above sea level.
