Sam Temple, Owner and Baker at Fire Dog Breads in Keene, NH

Published on: 01 July 2020

When Sam Temple moved back to his native New Hampshire, he knew he needed a different career. So he started baking, a few loaves, then more, then more. These days, Fire Dog Breads is a full retail bakery making ferociously good bread and pastries for their community in Keene.

In this episode, Mark and Sam talk about running across each other on the Guild forums when Sam was starting out, the slow, steady process to build and grow his bakery, who Sam thinks the podcast is really for, and much more!
