Know Your Baker

Neighbourhood bakers play a hugely positive role in their communities. One that goes far beyond basic nourishment. Their stories deserve to be heard.

The Rise Up! Podcast is a celebration of bakers, the bakeries they create and the people they serve.

Join Mark Dyck as he talks with bakers and bakery owners from across North America and around the world. Hear about their struggles and triumphs and learn about the satisfaction that feeding a community can provide.

When Helene Godin left her law career, she dreamed of opening a cute bakery that served her local community in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York.  And she did that, at least for a little while.

By The Way Bakery now has four locations in New York and is in over 40 Whole Foods Markets.  In this episode, Mark and Helene talks about making the switch from the corporate life, getting started, then leaping to wider distribution.

Oh, and By The Way, everything Helene makes is gluten free, dairy free and kosher!
