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.

Twelve years ago, Ciril Hitz wrote two of the most influential baking books around, complete with a companion DVD to bring his baking to life.   He continues teaching and sharing his skills to this day, through Johnson and Wales University, personal classes and his popular BreadHitz website.

In this episode, Mark learns about Ciril's early days as an Industrial Design student, how Peter Reinhart forced him to try out for Team USA and how that experience, and his early videos, continue to influence his work to this day.
