The blog is my Whole Self Home Base,
where all the aspects of my life come together through my writing.

It’s like a bread recipe - bring a wide variety of ingredients together and create something way better than the individual parts.

You’ll find riffs on community and connection, musings on baking and fermentation, reflections on travel experiences and much more.

 
 

 
 

Rise Up! #48: Teisha Huff of Night Oven Bakery in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

I am so pumped about this episode.

The first time I met Teisha Huff was on Twitter after Orange Boot Bakery had been open for three months. I was bemoaning how busy and tired we were and she said something like “hey, if you’re looking for an intern I’ll come!” That started a working relationship and friendship that I still relish.

Not only was Teisha our first intern, she moved to Regina full time after graduation from baking school and became our Head of Bread. These were Orange Boot’s blissful days, where we had a full team and were rocking out the best baked goods in town.

But after a few years together, things got hard for Teisha and she felt she needed to switch careers for a while. Thank goodness that didn’t last too long. These days she’s in Saskatoon, back to baking the good stuff at Night Oven Bakery.

In this episode, we have a great chat and get caught up on all the cool things Teisha’s done in her young life. We also dig into exactly what it’s like to be a young baker, working the early shift when it seems the world around you is on an opposite schedule. And we figure out how to be at peace with that - as much as possible anyway.
