Charlie Tennessen is a farmer, miller, yoga instructor, farrier, software developer, author, and home baker. Working on his tiny farm in Mount Pleasant, Anarchy Acres, Charlie seeks out forgotten 19th Century wheat varieties to create beautiful, healthy bread. Since Charlie has a busy schedule, he has developed the simple “2:1” sourdough bread recipe using only items found in an ordinary home kitchen. The result is bread that anyone can make and enjoy. Charlie’s books include “Kitchen Chaos: Recipes from a Wisconsin Homestead,” “Popcorn Day,” and “Rosie’s New Harness.”
