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 Leader is founder of Bread Alone Bakery and author of three outstanding books on bread and bakeries (in addition to being one of Mark's baking heroes!)

His latest book, Living Bread, continues to inform local bakers via innovations in European baking and milling.

In this episode, Mark and Daniel talk about the struggles the current micro-bakers face as they build businesses for the long term, in the context of the innovation he's seen in Europe. It's a challenging and compelling talk.
