Know Your Baker

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 Sam Temple moved back to his native New Hampshire, he knew he needed a different career. So he started baking, a few loaves, then more, then more. These days, Fire Dog Breads is a full retail bakery making ferociously good bread and pastries for their community in Keene.

In this episode, Mark and Sam talk about running across each other on the Guild forums when Sam was starting out, the slow, steady process to build and grow his bakery, who Sam thinks the podcast is really for, and much more!
