Derek was an understudy and longtime friend of the famed bread oven builder Alan Scott. In fact, Derek’s first run-in with Alan happened during one of the first bread oven building workshops that North House ever hosted. Since then, Derek has gone on to build a wood-fired bakery of his own on a homestead just outside Thunder Bay, Ontario. Derek runs a portable wood-fired pizza business and builds brick ovens in addition to baking weekly for the Thunder Bay Country Market. Learn more about Derek's baking and building at
