Breadsong: How Baking Changed Our Lives

Breadsong: How Baking Changed Our Lives

Breadsong is an inspiring story of the life-saving power of discovering a passion.

Around the time she turned 14, Kitty began experiencing anxiety, slowly disconnecting from everyone around her, until she discovered baking bread and came to a stunning realisation: bread is alive. One loaf quickly escalated into an obsession, and Kitty felt better than she had for a long time. Within nine months, Kitty and Al opened The Orange Bakery – and they haven’t stopped since.

Expect cinnamon buns and banter at this BIF Lifestyle Event.
