Sarah Owens received a bachelor of arts with an emphasis in ceramics from Bellarmine University in Louisville, Kentucky and is the owner of BK17 Bakery, an artisan microbakery. After receiving a certificate from the New York Botanical Garden’s School of Professional Horticulture, she spent six years as curator of the historic Cranford Rose Garden and the Rose Arc Pool at Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

She is the author of the forthcoming cookbook Sourdough and emphasizes seasonal, whole foods in her recipes.
