"Teaching aspiring chefs, I try to challenge my students to think spaciously about food—to develop a broader awareness of food and its cultural and environmental implications. I think it is important for students to relate what they learn in the classroom to their own real-world experiences. I hope my efforts empower my students to make more informed choices about food and encourage them to critically examine the expression of their trade."

Bread Boule

I hate baking anything but bread—I love the process! It's such a cathartic activity that involves all of your senses.
