I'm Jo, and I bake bagels (or try to). 

February 22, 2017

I guess the short answer is, I needed a distraction.  I needed something to deter my neurotic fixations in my somewhat depressed 29-year-old brain.  I needed a project that had nothing to do with my work, nothing to do with the work in the creative lives of the friends around me, and something that was niche enough that no one could tell me how to go about it (ok, even in my need for distraction, I am petulant and don't want to be told what to do).

But why bagels?...

Hi, I'm Jo.  Recently moved to Seattle by way of Marfa and Austin, TX, I seem to be fixated on baking a perfect New York bagel.  More about me.
