Saint Paul Bread Club (SPBC) Bread Baker Biographies

This is part of the new web site of the Saint Paul Bread Club.

The SPBC is made up of people with diverse backgrounds in baking. Some members have been baking bread for a long time; some are just starting the adventure.

Some of our members have won prizes at the state fair; others probably could if they felt confident enough to enter.

One of the goals of the SPBC is to help people build that confidence.

One way we thought that might help people get to know us better is to give them an idea of who we are collectively by giving profiles of some of our individual members.

So, enjoy reading about some of our members.

We want to know you better and for you to know us better!

We are always looking for volunteers to fill out the BBB questionnaire. Let us get to know you better.

I’ve put a blank questionnaire here; all you have to do is copy it and send it to David S. Cargo for inclusion in this collection.

Our passion for bread and bread making is what we have in common, but we come to that passion by different paths.

Thank you for joining us in our adventure.
