Share the stories behind your bread traditions in a new podcast

By Teresa Collins

We’re cooking up a new idea for a podcast series: rural food traditions. And we’re starting where many meals across diverse food traditions begin: bread.

Food is a uniter; and across culinary traditions, bread is a common thread.

We want to talk with folks who are practicing a family or regional tradition around bread making  — and share the stories behind questions such as:

How did the practice begin?

How did you learn to make bread?

Why is it important to you, your family, community, or culture?

How do you plan to pass on the tradition?

Is it a recipe made for a special occasion?

We are interested in talking with bread-makers across the country, especially in these regions:

  • Deep South
  • Central Appalachia
  • Midwest
  • The Plains
  • Southwest
  • The West 

If you are interested in talking with us for the podcast, or know someone who be great to talk to, please contact us at .

In your email, let us know about your tradition, why it is important to you, and where you live. A few sentences will do! 

The series will be broadcast on our podcast channel, Rural Remix, and on our Rural Assembly YouTube channel.
