Tom Giancola of Makeathe, in Annapolis MD

Published on: 29 March 2023

Tom Giancola caught the bread bug watching Netflix seven years ago, and his friends and neighbours have never been happier.  His generous spirit feeds an ever larger group of people in Annapolis, Maryland, through his exceptional basement bakery, Makeathe.

In this episode, Mark and Tom talk about the intricacies of building a professional bakery under your living room, how his baking has been embraced by Annapolis food-lovers, how giving is a key part of what makes Tom tick, and how he helped cottage bakers of all kinds by making lasting political change.
