Chef Jeremy Shapiro of Stir the Pots has talked with some of the most prominent bread bakers/authors/teachers you can think of. I’ve found it so interesting to listen to their different personal stories, what draws them to baking, and their perspectives on the current state of baking in the US and around the world. Check out Jeremy’s podcasts of interviews with:
- Emily Buehler, author of Bread Science
- Noel Comess, Tom Cat Bakery
- Jeffrey Hamelman, King Arthur Flour, author of Bread: A Baker’s Book of Techniques and Recipes
- Jim Lahey, Sullivan Street Bakery, no-knead bread guru
- Daniel Leader, author of Bread Alone and Local Breads
- Dan Lepard, author of The Handmade Loaf
- Michael London, Mrs. London’s
- Craig Ponsford, chairman of the Bread Baker’s Guild of America
- Peter Reinhart, author of The Bread Baker’s Apprentice
- Amy Scherber, Amy’s Bread
- Steve Sullivan, Acme Bread Company

Jeremy, I can see why you would be proud of these interviews. I loved listening to them, and looking forward to your next one!
Susan – I’ve enjoyed these interviews and have to rather sadly admit that I keep them on my iPod and regularly re-listen. I found them thorugh Jeremy’s links on the Dan Lepard site. Thanks for collecting the links all in one place – I hadn’t picked up on the Daniel Leader interview. Barry. PS I will be emailing you about our trip to California last week for which you gave us some great bakery/cafe/restaurant recommendations! We had a fab time!!
Barry, glad to help. I’m looking forward to hearing more about your vacation!
