August 2014 I Love Memphis Podcast: Muddy’s Bake Shop Owner Kat Gordon

Posted by Holly Whitfield | August 4th 2014 2432 0

On this month's I Love Memphis Podcast, my cohost Kevin Cerrito and I sit down with founder and owner of Muddy's Bake Shop, Kat Gordon. During the interview, she makes a big announcement about the name of the new Muddy's midtown location. (Hint: Grizz fans will love this one.)

We discuss how Kat's "college insomnia baking" turned into the nationally-known, local institution that is Muddy's Bake Shop, what the journey has been like for her and her staff, and all the details of the new location.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.

    Great podcast. I love hearing about the history of Muddy's. Just FYI, it is totally legal to sell baked goods made at home! It was legal when the founder of Muddy's did it, although state inspections were required. It is now legal without inspections: I would hate for people to think they can't start a small baked goods business because they can't afford a commercial kitchen.
