From Cannoli to Chapati: A Baker’s Culinary Journey (January 27, 2008)

I got to eat some incredible pastries while producing this interview/story, but the absolute best part of the project was getting to work with legendary NPR journalist Danny Zwerdling. I prepped and produced this piece for Weekend Edition.

Baker’s Culinary Journey Piece

“For Greg Patent, an Italian bakery burgeoning with pignoli cookies, fat cannoli and sweet pastries is cause for investigation.

Patent, a veteran baker, cooking teacher and cookbook author, hunted down the secrets of ethnic baking from more than 30 nations, including Italy, Nigeria, Austria and India. His new book, A Baker’s Odyssey, collects recipes for the delectable treats and offers insights into their culinary history and cultural significance. For his research, Patent visited more than five-dozen master home bakers around the U.S.”
