Adrian Hale is a baker and food writer whose foray into baking bread began as a last-ditch effort to find bread that her daughter's stomach could tolerate. After a bit of experimenting, Adrian perfected her "Mama Bread" and has never gone back. Today she combines her passion for writing and bread baking-her essays have appeared in publications such as Saveur, Culture and Brain, Child Magazine. She also edits an online magazine called Communal Table, and blogs about her baking adventures on her blog Thousand Bites of Bread. Adrian's family has a deep-rooted connection to bread, which is part of the reason she refused to give up on it. "My grandmother was a concentration camp survivor and she always said that bread saved her," shares Adrian, explaining that bread has long been a pillar of their meals and family culture. Listen in!
