Today on the podcast I excited to offer this interview with Jeremiah Duarte Bills. Jeremiah will tell you that he comes from a dessert-obsessed family. Growing up close to his grandparents and their Portuguese heritage, he began baking in college to connect to his Portuguese roots. After his first trip to Portugal, he fell in love with the country’s dessert and baking traditions. As a self-taught baker, Jeremiah appeared on ABC’s 2016 The Great American Baking Show where he baked many Portuguese recipes. This experience connected him to people all over the world who are hungry to learn about Portuguese dessert recipes. Jeremiah is the co-host of the popular baking podcast FLOUR HOUR, is writing a Portuguese Dessert cookbook, and teaches baking classes out of his home. Jeremiah’s background is in music. He attended the world-famous Juilliard School and performed as an orchestral flutist all over the world. He lives in Sacramento, California where he keeps bees, teaches aspiring flute and piano students, and of course, bakes.
