“I bake because it connects my soul to my hands, and my heart to my mouth.”

Martin Philip ( is the head bread baker at King Arthur Flour in Norwich, Vermont. He is a former member of Team USA which competed in the SIGEP Golden Cup in Rimini, Italy and was a finalist in the selection process for the coveted bread spot on Team USA at the World Cup of baking.  He is a sought after educator and has traveled internationally to bring baking education and his love of craft to under-served populations in rural villages in the Dominican Republic, to ex-convicts at Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles, California, and to recently-landed bakers-in-training at Hot Bread Kitchen in New York City.  In previous lives, he was a professional opera singer with a degree from Oberlin Conservatory.  He spent time on the operations side of investment banking and attended The New York Art Students League for drawing.  In 2016, he was awarded a prestigious fellowship at the MacDowell Colony. He lives in Vermont with his wife Julie Ness and their three children.

Martin’s eagerly anticipated book about bread, a meditation on the art and craft of baking bread that reaches beyond technique and inspires at-home bakers to explore the essence of baking as an act of love, featuring photographs, hand-drawn illustrations and original recipes will be published by HarperCollins in the fall of 2017.
