Don Guerra, Community Baker at Barrio Bread in Tucson, Arizona

Published on: 26 September 2018

Don Guerra is not simply an awesome bread baker.  He’s also a leader in the Community Supported Bakery movement and is at the forefront of the local grain movement in Tucson, Arizona.


In this episode, Mark and Don have a lively discussion about Don’s life in baking, including a significant detour right in the middle, and how his local community supported his reboot, first in his garage and then with his retail bakery.  They also marvel at the connections bakers make with each other all around the globe.  It really is a global (baker) village!
