The Baker Maker Roadshow

By: Martin Philip

The Baker Maker Roadshow is a biscuit-powered baking, bicycle, and banjo tour of the Arkansas Ozarks. Built around food and story collection, the Roadshow will curate new kinds of conversations which cross generations and other divisions in an attempt to increase understanding, empathy and connection.

Beginning in Brashears and headed toward Ozark, Martin will pedal south on Highway 23, the “Pig Trail.” He will carry a basket of ingredients and knock on doors, offering to bake, play his banjo, and talk. In the course of these conversations his hope is that we might return to our basic connections, using stories and food to rekindle our common, compassionate, human traits.
