Episode 264: Owning a Bakery & Writing a Cookbook with Colleen Worthington of Kneaders Bakery & Cafe

Welcome to the latest episode of our podcast. I’m excited to be here. Before we dive into our interview today with Colleen Worthington, I want to let you know about free training for food or nutrition experts who want to write a cookbook but aren’t sure where to start, how to spend your time, or what publishers are looking for, we have a free training session that you’ll love. This training covers the three common mistakes cookbook writers make, the four steps to make your work appealing to publishers, and the best publishing path to choose if you don’t want to spend your time or money on editing, design, and printing. You can access the on-demand training at www.cookbookwritersacademy.com/free, and within just 45 minutes, you’ll learn how to use your time wisely and create a cookbook platform, concept, and proposal that publishers will love. 

So today on the podcast, I’m thrilled to have an interview with Colleen Worthington. Colleen is the author of the soon-to-be-released cookbook Kneaders Bakery & Cafe: A Celebration of Our Best Recipes and Memories, due for release on October 3. After more than twenty-five years of building a baking empire out of her own kitchen Colleen and her husband Gary pursued their interest in scratch-made artisan breads. After training at the American Institute of Baking and San Francisco Baking Institute and working closely with Lehi Roller Mills to develop an exclusive flour mixture and locate a traditional Italian hearth-stone oven, Colleen and Gary opened their first bakery in 1997. Within a few months, they expanded to offer a variety of sandwiches, soups, salads, and pastries and now have over 50 locations in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, Texas, and Utah. Today on the podcast, Colleen and I talk about Kneaders Bakery & Cafe, her philosophy on sharing their best recipes in a cookbook, and their method for specialty items they are known for, such as slow-roasted hand-pulled turkey, seasonal menu items, fresh pastries, comfort food, and her favorite cookbook
