Giveaway!! Our new book, What the Bread Says is coming out on October 1st.

To celebrate, we are giving away a Grand Prize bundle that is valued at $220.

We are also giving away a hardcover copy of What the Bread Says to 10 additional winners!


Baking with Love, History, and Papan.

Join Papan and Vanessa on a globe-trotting, bread-baking adventure from Spain to France to Cuba and back again!  Based on a true story, this is how Vanessa, while kneading, dancing, and singing, learned about her past, and how it helped shape her present and future.

Baking bread requires a lot of patience. Some of it is about mixing ingredients, and another part -- a big part -- is about waiting. Waiting while the dough rises, rests, rises, and bakes. And while they wait, Papan tells Vanessa his amazing life adventures! In this storytelling, Vanessa learns about her roots, the power of love and family, and how stories can carry us through difficult times.

Available for pre-order wherever books are sold.
