'The best bread we have had in many years, thanks to your efforts Dean.'
Rick Stein, The Seafood Restaurant, Padstow, Cornwall, England.

'As a nation of bakers, its easy for Scottish hackles to rise when a New Zealander tries to tell us how to go about it, but that's just what New Zealand Baker Dean Brettschneider has done with his latest book "Baker", released this week in Scotland.'
Sarah Milne, Scotland on Sunday Newspaper, Soctland, United Kingdom

'The strength of this book, Baker, lies in its due authorship. The combination of a professional baker, Dean Brettschneider who gives us the 'whys' as well as the 'hows' of baking, not to mention 'what went wrong', with a food lover Lauraine Jacobs. I can't wait to make Babka's Shoo-fly buns!'
Australia's leading food writer, restaurateur and chef, Stephanie Alexander

'A good read, to bake perfect cakes, pastries and breads here's the book for you - Baker by Dean Brettschneider & Lauraine Jacobs.'

Age newspaper, Melbourne Australia

'Can't wait to try a batch of Spinach & Parmesan Muffins.'
Brisbane newspaper

This book presents everything the home baker, professional baker or chef needs to know about breads, cakes and pastries.

The reference section provides comprehensive information on basic principled, ingredients, techniques, equipment and formulas and gives the reader a thorough understanding of how and why baking works. The recipe section is made up of the best recipes from the best bakeries in Australia and New Zealand. This brilliant range of baking includes the new and innovative as well as traditional recipes.

This is a superb reference and recipe book for everyone involved or interested in the baking industry. For me, this book (either edition) should be part of the 'must' recipe book collection - The Marlborough Express
