Sam Fromartz article on Mike 'the Bejkr' Zakowski

I found a great article by TFL member Sam Fromartz the other day on Mike 'the Bejkr' Zakowski and wanted to share it on the forum for anyone who may not have seen it.  Phil- 'PiPs' recently posted a fascinating video of Mike and his home shop here .  Sam's article goes a little further still with Mikes baking background and his training for the upcoming  Coupe du Monde de la Boulangerie in Paris. You might  want to check out Sam's Chews Wise blog as well for lots of good info on baking & food related topics.
