The Ginger Bread Man is the fictional account of one man’s quest to abandon the life of the 9-5 worker to pursue a career in baking. In this inspiring story, a man named Jacob runs away from his seemingly secure but faceless and unfulfilling office job. A wise and mysterious baker teaches him sixteen principles about making bread…and living life.
By learning about dough, yeast and the baking process, Jacob discovers a true connection to the artisan craft of creating bread and realizes his work is more than a job. The bakery becomes his vocation and purpose in life. He discovers a way to touch people in a simple yet meaningful way.
