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.

Joe Fitzmaurice comes from a long line of bakers and restaurateurs.  But when he and his wife Julie closed their successful Dublin bakery to move to a tiny Eco-village in Cloughjordan, he was making a statement about local community, local grain and the Common Loaf.

In this episode, Mark learns about life in an intentional community, how Soda Bread is a new 'tradition', what the Common Loaf movement is all about and how if Joe ends up baking less and less bread then he's truly fulfilled his vision.
