Have you heard of the bread influencers? With many people staying at home, they have turned to baking bread as a way to pass the time and discover something new. This has led to amateur bakers turning into celebrities, and even using the opportunity to monetize their social media accounts as influencers.
However, what we love seeing are the passions people are sharing online, including some pretty amazing bread art. It’s inspiring to watch people turn to the techniques of the past and one of the foundations of civilization and share their journey with us today.
Baking bread is both art and comfort. The world may be uncertain right now, but there is magic in creating something out of nothing. Which got us thinking about how the process of baking bread might actually relate to our own creative process.
Prepare your space with openness and positivity – you don’t want to get stuck with the first idea thrown on the table.
Knead it out
Let out all of your ideas, good and bad, and start pounding away at them.
Let it rise
Step away from the project for a minute and refresh your mind– the best ideas always rise to the top.
Execute your chosen ideas, giving them life, flavor, and color.
Share with others
This is the best part – taking what we have created and sharing it with the world.
Both baking bread and our creative process require patience, precision, and a sprinkle of imagination. We have found that while the bread itself may nourish our bodies, the act of making it nourishes our souls and our creative spirits.
