Celebrity crush: Mark Wahlberg.

Bakers that Make Our Dough Rise

Hottest Female Baker

Simone Morris-Martin, 25

Job, pastry baker at Baked bakery.

I love my job and being a baker at Baked because I get to spend time every day with people who think critically, have fun, and have taught me so much about food in the two years that I've worked here. It is, unfortunately, rare to be able to work for a food establishment where you truly feel good about the ingredients that you're using and where they come from—we are very lucky to live in a place where excellent pastured meats and raw milk and cheeses are available, and I'm lucky to work somewhere that trades with local farmers, and would rather pay extra to utilize their product. I love being able to put a pie on the shelf and know the different farmers that grew almost all of the ingredients in it, and also know that whoever eats it isn't just getting a sugar rush, they're actually nourishing themselves, and supporting a community of local food growers. Also, we blast revolutionary hip-hop as loud as we want. Job perks.

Single or taken? Single

Hobbies: Biking around town, playing and hiking with my dog, dancing to the funky beats, making art, eating and cooking foods that are truly nourishing and not produced by the corporate, industrial food system that feeds most of our country.

What are your hottest non-physical qualities? As Dead Prez said," Intelligence is sexy, yo. " I also try my hardest to be a good friend to as many people as I can, and develop genuine relationships in my community.

Celebrity crush? Pre-sex change Tom Gabel, Charles Bradley's voice, Amy Poehler, the entire cast of Twin Peaks (except BOB) and Andy Dwyer on Parks and Recreation.

Hottest Male Baker

Tommy Clabough, 43

Baker/ Owner, Nancy P's Cafe & Bakery

Is it tough being as hot as you are?

No, not when I stand in front of a 450-degree oven most days.

What are your hottest non-physical qualities? My cheery attitude at 4 am.

Were you always this hot—or, were you an ugly duckling who has become a beautiful swan?
