If you didn’t already know, Don Guerra’s bread is awesome. He integrates heritage grains into his work and promotes the local food movement here in Tucson. Guerra’s bread is a hot item in Tucson — and can often be found on local “Top Ten” lists — but in 2016 he was named one of the “Top Ten Bakers in America” by Dessert Professionals magazine and this year, he has been nominated for “Outstanding Baker” in the James Beard 2019 Restaurants and Chef Awards.

However, he’s also got a pretty impressive resume in addition to his dough.

Guerra has spent time teaching classes at The University of Arizona and Tucson Village Farm, has given presentations at the Eller College of Management, and has also collaborated with Native Seed Search.

The coffee and conversation is free to attend at the Fox Theatre but just make sure you register beforehand to secure your seat.
