Ed and Natasha Tatton: becoming a 100% plant-based and vegan-friendly bakery (S9/Ep.13)

Published on: 11th October, 2023

Ed and Natasha Tatton are the husband/wife duo of BReD, the popular vegan bakery + cafe in Whistler, BC.  They’re about to release their first book; BReD: Sourdough Loaves, Small Breads, and Other Plant-Based Baking (available November 2023), which will add to their already loyal following at the bakery as well as the hundreds of thousands of people who tune-in to their social media to watch Ed shaping dough to upbeat tunes. 

In this episode we learn about their journey from vegetarian to plant-based and how (for Ed), it reignited a passion for cooking. Natasha shares her theory for vegan options in restaurants and how they wow guests at their bakery day in and day out. We also throw them in the hot seat with questions from some of the world’s most renowned chefs.

There’s more to this kind and talented couple than their micro-bakery. Ed and Natasha have baked-in (pun intended) social impact into the very core of their business operations. They’re not just baking delicious breads and treats; they’re also making a difference with initiatives like their work with Trees for the Future. Enjoy this episode as we go Beyond the Plate… with Ed and Natasha Tatton.
