“I have tan grains, brown, rust colored grains, blonde grains, something in between. Sometimes buckwheat that can turn it different colors of purple. Thinking of that as a baker, you don’t want all your breads to look the same...

It’s ARTISANAL. We’re artists too... “

...I like to make bread that looks like my desert - the desert where I live. It’s kind of this initial picture I have of the loaf I want to create and I can just go LIKE A PAINTER into those grains and get the pigments and draw them out and that’s what I did with the line up of breads...

“Sourdough taught me….that it’s OK to do things differently…it’s OK to mess up, it’s OK not to have the perfect score on my loaf, it’s OK not to have oven spring somedays. All these things teach you valuable lessons and they take you to the next level. I really think it’s a journey that is ongoing for everybody and it’s so powerful to share with others because you end up learning so much from each other.”
