Lanczak and Charles R. Niedermyer took part in building what the guild believes is the tallest bread sculpture ever made. The sculpture is 10 feet, 2 inches high and approximately 4 feet in diameter. The guild plans to verify that it is indeed the world’s tallest bread sculpture and to find it a permanent home. The effort was led by Ciril Hiltz, of Johnson and Wales University, with help from other camp instructors and students. During Camp Bread, held May 20-22 at the San Francisco Baking Institute, Lanczak, instructor of hospitality management/culinary arts, was assistant director of education, and Niedermyer, instructor of baking and pastry arts/culinary arts, was a teaching assistant. Camp Bread is a hands-on conference for professional and home bakers, educators, and those in related fields. The two joined a corps of instructors from around the country, as well as France and Ireland.
