Tom Papa gets “Baked” on Food Network, new book out for Father’s Day

Tom Papa has been telling Joe Rogan about bread for years. Here he was a couple of years ago bringing homemade sourdough to the Joe Rogan Experience.

Two days ago, Papa was back on the JRE, this time to announce he’s got a new TV series about bread and baked goods, Baked!, premiering this Labor Day on the Food Network. From a shoot this April in New York City, this description of the series: “The show will follow Tom as he visits 5 different bakeries or restaurants in a city and learns how to make the iconic baked goods (breads, cookies, cakes, pies, pastries, etc.) that are a part of the fabric of that city.”

Papa also has a new book out, just in time for Father’s Day, called ‘Your Dad Stole My Rake: And Other Family Dilemmas.’

He talked dad stuff with Stephen Colbert last night on The Late Show.
