Daniel Leader is founder of Bread Alone Bakery and author of three outstanding books on bread and bakeries (in addition to being one of Mark's baking heroes!)

His latest book, Living Bread, continues to inform local bakers via innovations in European baking and milling.

In this episode, Mark and Daniel talk about the struggles the current micro-bakers face as they build businesses for the long term, in the context of the innovation he's seen in Europe. It's a challenging and compelling talk.
