Ask a chef enough questions and you eventually get work in the kitchen.  At least that's what happened to Lisa Somerville.  After always finding extra waitress shifts and asking a ton of questions, Lisa embarked on a varied career as a pastry chef in restaurants and hotels, before finally opening her own bakery in the vacation heartland of the White Mountains in New Hampshire.

In this episode, Mark and Lisa talk her baking journey and how raising a family and teaching at the community college all fits into her hectic yet rewarding life.
