On May 18, 2020, Museum of the Moving Image’s Science on Screen series presented a live online event featuring renowned baker Avery Ruzicka, founder and head baker of San Francisco’s Manresa Bread, and botanist Nicholas Money, author of The Rise of Yeast. Dirty in the Kitchen: Yeast and Breadmaking celebrates kitchen “dirt” and experiments with yeast, a critical ingredient. Moderated by Sonia Epstein, Curator of Science on Screen.


Discussions with creative figures in film, television, and digital media—formerly the Pinewood Dialogues—made possible with a generous grant from the Pannonia Foundation.
