Several years ago, Meg's life changed when she was invited to the Swedish island of Rodlogo, an island with no running water or electricity. While there, she fell in love with the people, traditions, foods, and a small café, which specialized in breads and sandwiches. Every year she returns to Rodlogo to work at that small café, absorbing classic recipes, methodologies, and traditions of the area. Meg spends most of her time in California, except for her summers, which are dedicated to her favorite bakeshop in Sweden.
