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.

Sarah Black is an OG of the New York baking scene. She's one of the first bakers at Tom Cat Bakery and was later a teacher alongside Amy Scherber, before moving home to Ohio to teach and write the excellent book "One Dough, Ten Breads" (one of Mark's favourites.)

In this episode, Mark and Sarah talk about the glory days of baking in New York in the early '90s, making the move to teaching and consulting, and Sarah's newest project, the Bread Box home baking kit, which launched in the fall of 2021.
