    Our very own Bigger Bolder Baking host, Gemma Stafford, sits down with cookbook author, Harper's Bazaar Arabia's Food Editor, and Global Baker/Chef Dalia Dogmoch Soubra! Knead to Know's usual host, Mia, is out on vacation this week, so Gemma is here to chat with Dalia one on one, to talk about what makes a baker — is it our history and past? Or is it travel and experience? Join them as they dive deep into Dalia's amazing story — and how a global worldview is important to baking from both a personal and professional perspective. 

    At The Counter Guest:
    Dalia Dogmoch Soubra is the founder of Kitsch Bakery & Café, and she currently resides in Dubai. She's Harper's Bazaar Arabia's food editor, appears on major TV shows as a culinary personality and professional, and her cookbook "Food, Love and Life from Dalia's Kitchen" has topped charts across the world.
