Education: Tufts University

Julia Stimeck has worked as a professional baker for over seven years in both restaurants and production bakeries. Her favorite ingredients to work with are sourdough starter, heritage grains, and rainbow sprinkles. Her time tending to slow processes in fast-paced kitchens has given her a perspective on what steps are important and what shortcuts are worth taking.


  • She received a scholarship from the Women Chefs and Restauranteurs to study Versatile Whole Grains with the Bread Bakers Guild of America
  • Her proudest baking accomplishment is adding a line of sourdough bagels to production at the bakery. And then making 300-800 a day!
