The K here stands for Kai Borson-Paine, the V for Venti Hristova. Both have a background in film: Borson-Paine is a digital imaging technician and Hristova worked on several Marvel films and "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 1," among others, as a visual effects supervisor at Cantina Creative.
Three years ago, the couple fell into bread baking the same way many of us fall into bread baking. After a revelatory trip to Tartine Bakery in San Francisco, they picked up a copy of "Tartine Bread" and began growing their starter, which they named Bubbles, because that's not only what a starter does, but also because Bubbles was one of the best characters on "The Wire."
The starter essentially kickstarted their idea to start baking on a larger scale. "I want to feed people for the rest of my life," Hristova says.
