Episode #5: Bread

by Kelly Minter and Regina Pinto | A Place at the Table Podcast

Episode #5

In this episode, Kelly and Regina are joined by Kelly’s brother, David Minter, who talks with them about all things bread. Several years ago, David bought a book on how to make bread, tried his hand at making it, and realized how much he enjoyed the craft!

Now deemed by his family as the maker of the best pizza dough ever, David shares some of his tips on how to make bread, what types of bread are healthiest, and how bread-making ultimately points back to how God created us to be.


The key highlights of this episode:

  • Time and temperature are the two top components to making a good loaf of bread.
  • Just because a recipe or creation doesn’t turn out exactly how you wanted it doesn’t mean that you should quit. It’s all a part of the process and refining your craft.
  • If you are new to bread-making, it’s best to start with a “no-knead” recipe that uses instant yeast. Even if you haven’t made bread before, it’s best to just jump in and try it!
  • God designed us to be producers and creators, so whatever your hobby may be, using your hands to create is part of how God has designed you.


Quotes from Kelly + Regina:

“We are meant to be producers and creators.” – David

“Bread in and of itself is not a bad thing… you’ve just got to make sure you’re working with the right ingredients.” – David

“Let’s get baking, so we can not only enjoy the pleasure of having control over something and creating something but also so that we can nourish our loved ones.” – Kelly
