Stefan Spicknell knows who his bakery is for. All he has to do is look out his door on Great Western Road in Glasgow and look at the flats, the schools and the people walking by. And his deep focus those people, and his craft, is what keeps Cottonrake Bakery grounded in his community.
In this episode, Mark and Stefan talk about Stefan's journey to the Great Western Road, from a rented kitchen, to a tiny shop, to a tiny shop with a cafe down the road. And how he's overcome everything from heart surgery to volcanoes to make Cottonrake a mainstay in Glasgow's West End.
