About the Author
Jane Mason, a strategy consultant by background, has had a life-long fascination with bread and learned to bake by working with bakers all over the world. In 2010, she started Virtuous Bread to make it fun and easy for people to make, find and learn about good bread. In addition to baking and teaching professionally, Jane works on a voluntary basis with diverse groups including prisoners and school children, using bread as a catalyst for social change. She established Bread Angels in 2011, to teach people how to set up home bakeries, enabling them to work how and when they want, build their local communities, and earn money both baking and teaching others to bake. Jane speaks and writes about bread and its profound role in our lives over time. She was given Red magazine’s Hot Woman Breakthrough Award in 2011 for the most promising new business in the food industry. This is her first book.
