Bread in the time of Covid (BITTOC) was initially inspired by our neighbour’s front-door cookie dropoffs, the frustration in the vanilla extract shortage, professional chef home how-to videos, the plethora of insta #bakingfails, and the expanding amount of baked goods (and accompanied waistbands) in our own homes.

But what really made the idea worthwhile is the people and stories behind the perfectly-done sourdough bread, exploding microwave mug cakes, and great-grandma’s date squares. Food has a unique power to devulge a slice of history, unite us across cultures and locations, inspire us to share our life experiences, and welcome perspectives from others.

Ultimately, we’d like to memorialize the collection into a book that can be enjoyed around the world.
