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.

Peter Reinhart is the author of many books on bread and pizza in addition to being a stellar baker and teacher. His 2001 book The Bread Baker's Apprentice was the first bread book Mark ever bought and kick-started hundreds of baking journeys around the world.

In this episode, Mark learns about Peter's winding and accomplished career in baking, writing and teaching, his love of pizza and the amazing bread symposium "On the Rise", held annually at Johnson and Wales University in Charlotte, NC.
