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.

Daniel Speek grew up in the US but now lives in the Netherlands, where he is slowly and steadily growing a following for his bread and baking.  It's hard work, especially in a market that does not have a strong bread culture.

In this episode, Mark and Daniel talk about the bread scene in Maastricht, alternative ways to bootstrap and grow a micro bakery and what it's like to live and bake in a squat community.

Survey requests!  Please help Mark design the new Bakers 4 Bakers community by answering a few questions. 

And help Daniel make his next move at Bread Connections too.
