Sweet Memories x KCRW's Good Food
In the summer of 2014 I teamed up with the radio show Good Food on KCRW 89.9 in Los Angeles to do an online interview series that I called "Sweet Memories." I interviewed various bakers in the Los Angeles area to see how memories affected their process and current craft. Baking is a nostalgic practice that is usually passed down through generations of bakers, but there are some exceptions to this rule. These are some of the things I discovered in interviewing people like Zoe Nathan of Huckleberry in Santa Monica and Na Young Ma of Proof Bakery in the Atwater Village. Each interview is four short questions. I kept the structure of the interviews short in the interest of the bakers' time - they don't have much time to do a long sit down interview. The first three questions are the same for each baker and the fourth is specialized to each person. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
