a bit about me

Hello there!

My name is Zoe.

I am a baker.

I’m into bread, jam and butter and finding new ways to combine them. I work for a bakery, but it doesn’t allow me much of a creative outlet, so I decided to find my own way.

This blog will be my trials and tribulations of exploring my kitchen and taste buds. It will give me an excuse to spend too much money at farmer’s markets, all in the name of research of course.

I am also a scientist. I snagged a bachelors in Food Science, then I went to pastry school as a sort of graduate school substitution.

I love unpacking the science and history behind food and food culture, so this blog will be a mish-mash of all of the above. It will have recipes, food ramblings, history lessons, and detailed accounts on gluten and other foods that we all talk about, but do we really know what and who they are?

I hope you will find this blog well and meaningful, just as I will. I love to discuss food and bread with people, so please don’t hesitate to send in a question about why your cake isn’t rising or how long can you really keep that box of baking soda in the fridge. ARead More »
