About Forge Baking Company:

When Jennifer Park and Tucker Lewis opened Forge Baking Company in 2014, their hope was to bring high-quality products with intention and care. With two additional cafes open, Diesel and Bloc, they wanted to have creative control of their bread and pastries in order to bring the best to the Somerville community. After 5 years of serving Somerville with naturally leavened hand-shaped bread, we are excited to share our knowledge for you to bring to your own kitchen.

About baker Jojo Emerson:

Jojo began making bread during graduate school, and quickly learned that her passion lay not in academia but in artisan baking. She taught herself bread baking through books, classes, workshops, and mainly, the internet. When others learned of her “hobby” (obsession), she began hosting bread classes from her Somerville kitchen. What began as friends coming over to bake morphed into a formal class with a curriculum and a months-long waitlist. She finally quit her academic job to pursue professional baking at Forge, and hasn’t looked back since.
