Bake From Scratch Magazine Summer Issue / by Adrienne Blumthal

The 2016 Baker's Dozen List

Five years ago I made the bold decision to leave a great agency job, where I worked with amazing people to go to pastry school. I didn’t really have a plan. I just knew that I loved to bake and I wanted to inspire other people to bake. It was a huge and scary risk and viewed as a provocative choice by some. It was a daring move, but one I made to better myself.

Last month I was named on Bake from Scratch Magazine’s "2016 Bakers Dozen" list. What they call, "The movers and shakers, shaping the future of the baking world.” I can’t even begin to communicate what an honor this is. I’m so proud to have been chosen to represent the community of scratch baking alongside 12 other amazingly talented people.

To anyone out there contemplating a change, do it. And do it for you. I’d much rather have failed, than have regrets for not trying.
