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.

Jamie Alexis was going to be a lawyer and a judge before she realized it was more rewarding (and tastier) to feed The People instead.  She opened Suga Brown Pastries and Catering in 2017 and hasn't looked back, making a splash at events throughout LA County.

In this episode, Mark learns some of the ins and outs of the catering business, what it's like to dive into the deep end of an Art Show Gala and how her business craves stability as much as her clients crave Jamie's Pineapple Cloud.
