Kate ’05

Forbes: Food & Wine named Kate a young talent in 30 under 30 for  her bakery. Kate and her husband Zachary founded Bien Cuit, a bakery rooted in the traditions of long fermentation and classical techniques, with a modern touch, in July 2011.

“During my time at Dynamy I found out not only what I wanted to do, but how much I could do. The program gave me the supported freedom to explore my interests and realize the extent of my strengths. I worked on a farm and in political organizing and found myself drawn to particular elements of both jobs that would later feed my career in the food industry.

As an organizer I learned what brings people together and motivates them and how to turn those big ideas into practical solutions. My respect for food and the importance of where it comes from is directly linked to those months I spent at The Heifer Project.”
