From Global Baker Dean Brettschneider comes this mouth-watering collection of more than 60 bread recipes plus detailed step-by-step instructions on artisan bread making techniques.

Bread by Dean Brettschneider is the definitive collection of irresistible recipes from a truly global baker, with stunning photography from leading food photographer, Aaron McLean.

Whether you fancy a bagel or a baguette, sourdough or sticky buns, these delectable and easy-to-follow recipes are sure to become firm favourites.

As one of New Zealand's most respected bakers, with more than 25 years of experience, Dean's in-depth knowledge of ingredients, equipment, processes and techniques will help you achieve the delicious taste of perfect freshly baked bread - whether healthy, savoury or sweet - to share and enjoy with family and friends.

Dean's indispensable expert knowledge will show you how simple it is to start baking, by mastering basic breads, such as a simple scone or a farmhouse loaf. When you've practised and gained an understanding of the taste, texture and feel of the dough, you'll have the confidence to move on to more ambitious breads. There is no limit to the different breads you can achieve with Dean's step-by-step advice - from baking a crusty ciabatta through to growing your own sourdough starter to create the ultimate pain au levain.

You will be amazed at the quality, lightness, volume, flavour, crust and crumb of your bread after following Dean's recipes, tips and know-how in his irresistible new book, Bread. His global baking influences will add a new twist to your artisan loaf.

- As a good friend of mine once said, "Bread is the new coffee" - and the success of Dean's Global Baker brand and the growing demand for the modern artisan loaf suggests this might well be true!

Bread is the definitive cookbook for bread baking today.
