Bryan Ford is a Miami-based bread baker from New Orleans who is known for experimenting with baking techniques. Bryan infuses his passion for his Latin American culture into his recipes on his popular blog Artisan Bryan (artisanbryan.com) and Instagram (@artisanbryan). Viewed in over 100 countries, Ford is especially known for his sourdough pan de coco recipe, inspired by a traditional Honduran bread. Bryan is currently the Head Baker of the Ironside Bakery, an artisanal bakery that focuses on using local, seasonal ingredients and organic grains to make rustic sourdough breads and viennoiserie.
Bryan brings so much heart, soul, and terroir to his bread baking. Each loaf tells a story and I can't wait to bring those stories to life in my own kitchen. - Joy Wilson, Joy the Baker
