Fresh out the oven with Pippa

Posted In: Hot Seat

We’re excited to share this fun collaboration and addition to our In the Hot Seat series -- Miss Pippa Allen, a bread-loving gal and Charleston food blogger. We tagged along to watch her work her bread-making wonders. She whipped us up delicious bagels, and we brought the Hot Honey. What resulted was a perfectly sticky, sweet afternoon we’re still giggling about. 

So how did you start baking?

Well, I started my first full-time job, and since I was working 9-5, I was concerned. When you’re a student, you have more time on your hands and that’s your identity, and I was like “Oh god I don't have that anymore,” so I needed time to dedicate to myself after 40 hours a week dedicated to something else. Before I had my job, I wanted to travel a lot and I was looking to becoming an au pair and moving to France to live with a random older woman and learn how to make bread. When I shared that idea with my co-workers, they were like “well why don’t you learn how to make bread now” so I did it! After work, I bought a beautiful pan and I made my first focaccia, and it has genuinely been the most fun ever since. Everything I’ve made comes from a weird desire that I get really excited about.
