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.

Slow Rise Bakery has been an inspiration for Mark ever since Paul and his partner built their timber framed bakehouse and brick oven in 2007.  Yet this is the first time they've met and had a chance to get to know each other.

In this episode, Mark and Paul discuss running a bakery within the constraint of living on a small island, designing a lifestyle around bread baking and what it's like to use the first wood fired commercial deck oven in Canada.
