BAKED: Treats for Breakfast, Lunch & Tea

BAKED: Treats for Breakfast, Lunch &

Author: Dean Brettschneider
Paperback, 208 pages
Penguin NZ

A collection of more than 80 delectable recipes to bake at home from Global Baker and pâtissier Dean Brettschneider.

On a typical day at one of Dean Brettschneider's many bakeries, you will find freshly baked croissants, American-style muffins, chocolate cakes, Danish rye bread, hazelnut biscotti, Turkish pide and a selection of homemade jams and chutneys. In Baked: Treats for Breakfast, Lunch & Tea, Dean shares the recipes and tricks of the trade you need to recreate these baked goods and more in your very own home - because nothing beats enjoying a delectable treat straight out of the oven.

Good baking caters to every eating occasion - and so too do the recipes in this cookbook. Taking inspiration from all corners of the globe, the recipes in BAKED: Treats for Breakfast, Lunch and Tea encompass what Dean's baking is all about - simple but stylish fare that will quickly have you and your family and friends scrambling for seconds.

Today, a bakery is no longer just a place where customers simply pop in for a staple loaf of bread, some dinner rolls, a few sweet pastries, a teacake or birthday cake. The modern bakery now caters to all three main eating occasions - breakfast, lunch and dinner.

“As I travel around the world in the course of my work, I find that observing people at breakfast time gives me a good idea of different eating cultures. I see people eating at cafés and restaurants, people eating on the street and on the move, people having business meetings over breakfast, elderly people exchanging gossip while they eat and young peoplewith their electronic devices in one hand and takeaway lattes in the other."

Whichever meal you are preparing - breakfast, lunch, dinner or something in between - baking is certain to play a key role.

BAKED details all the baking-related influences from Dean's time in Shanghai. Some of the recipes are classic and some offer refreshing new flavour combinations turning cultural eating habits on their heads. Regardless, each one reflects Dean's New World baking style and includes sections on savoury breads, sweet breads, savoury pastries, sweet pastries, muffins, scones, cakes, biscuits, slices and sweet treats.

‘Like me, Dean enjoys playing with flavours and combinations, and in his cookbooks he has introduced us to new tastes and pairings, whether a lightly spiced loaf of bread or a whimsical muffin. Aaron's photographs capture so much of Dean's skill at baking that you will find it hard to put this book down. But most importantly, what we learn from this book is Dean's craftsmanship and his exciting and innovative approach to flavour. Dean Brettschneider is truly a Global Baker.' - Peter Gordon, chef and restaurateur
