Program Description


'Tis the season to be baking! Benedictine monk and PBS TV host Father Dominic Garramone will present a live Zoom program with recipes for three holidays, including Hanukkah Jelly Donuts, Fruited Sweet Potato Bread for Kwanzaa, and a braided sweet bread centerpiece for your Christmas buffet that doubles as dessert! He'll share all three recipes and answer your baking questions, too. He was the host of the PBS cooking show "Breaking Bread with Father Dominic" from 1999 to 2001 and has written 10 cookbooks. His children's book, Brother Jerome and the Angels in the Bakery, was the recipient of the 2011 Christopher Award for Children's Books (ages 8 to 10) and the 2011 Catholic Press Association 1st Place Award for children's books.

Fr. Dom is a monk of Saint Bede Abbey in Peru, Illinois. He is the head of the religion department at Saint Bede Academy and teaches world religions and sacraments. He is also the drama director of the school and has published two plays. While his television program is no longer airing, "The Bread Monk" can still be seen on occasional PBS pledge specials as well as a baking instructor on Fr. Dom sys he got his culinary education "between my mother's kitchen, PBS and the public library." When not baking or teaching, he can usually be found in the abbey herb garden.
