Joe Fitzmaurice of of Riot Rye on living and baking in an Eco-village, the Common Loaf movement and training a generation of local bakers[S5E9]
Published on: 12 June 2019
Joe Fitzmaurice comes from a long line of bakers and restaurateurs. But when he and his wife Julie closed their successful Dublin bakery to move to a tiny Eco-village in Cloughjordan, he was making a statement about local community, local grain and the Common Loaf.
In this episode, Mark learns about life in an intentional community, how Soda Bread is a new 'tradition', what the Common Loaf movement is all about and how if Joe ends up baking less and less bread then he's truly fulfilled his vision.
