While browsing through my movies, I’ve found one that I hadn’t shared yet… It was a small introduction movie I filmed and produced for a meeting that never happened and thus, left aside in the bottom of one of my computer folder… I watched it and it turned out to be more than just an … Read more

I have to say that we are living in a rather abnormal period of bread or should I say food history on a more general scale; on one hand you have people like us trying to bake wholesome artisan bread using natural flour and sourdough, and on the other hand you have the Cronut, which … Read more
