Press

Here’s the April, 2016 announcement about the upcoming Modernist Bread, to which I was a contributor.

Paula Friedrich interviewed me for her NPR article, “For A Proper Pretzel Crust, Count On Chemistry And Memories.” It includes her mom’s German pretzel recipe. Also, I did some research before we talked, and I typed it up here. (August 2014)

Okay, I don’t know if this counts as press or not, but I was a fact-checker for Michael Pollan’s book, Cooked. I heard Mr. Pollan speak in Durham in April, 2013, but I didn’t introduce myself. But when I got home, I realized that Bread Science is listed in the sources, and I’m listed in the acknowledgments!

Michael Perakovich and his cohorts at Columbia County Bread and Granola put together this poetic (and somewhat dramatic) video describing what goes on in rising bread: The Bread Is Back. Take a look when you get a chance, it is a minute and a half long. (March, 2013)

Emily Wasserman interviewed me for her January, 2013 article, “Rising to the occasion: Novice bakers learn to make bread,” in Medill Reports at Northwestern University. (Disclaimer: I’m pretty sure I never said that yeast eats oxygen before switching to sugar; I think there were a few misunderstandings.)

Tabitha Alterman interviewed me for an article in the November, 2012 Mother Earth News“Amp Up Your Breads with Sprouted Grains and Multigrains” and “Homemade Whole-Grain Bread: You Have to Try This Amazing Recipe.”

Todd Oppenheimer interviewed me for his article “Our Daily Bread” published in the August, 2012, issue of Whole Living. This article contains a lot of information about modern gluten issues.

Robin Smith’s article “The Secret Life of Yeast Breads” in the January 31, 2011 Raleigh News and Observer. (It was also in the Charlotte Observer.)

A review at the Wild Yeast Blog, along with reader’s comments about their worst science class memories.

Jeremy’s interview with me from February, 2007 at www.stirthepots.com. I’m afraid I say “Um” a lot.

Floyd’s review of my book at www.thefreshloaf.com.
