Natalie Salzman, founder of Krume Backer in Panama City, Panama

Published on: 02 March 2022

Natalie Salzman  grew up in an Austrian mountain village and wound up living and working in Panama.  But she never lost her love of Austrian bread and over time began baking for her family and work colleagues.  These days, she's baking full time at her elegant bakery and bistro Krume Backer. 

In this episode, Mark and Natalie talk about travel, language, culture and design, and of course bakeries,  as Natalie recounts her journey from baking healthy bread for her daughter to building and running one of Panama City's premier bakeries.
