Baking is Dean Brettschneider's passion. Trained in New Zealand, he recently opened his own bakery in Shanghai at the prestigious address of Number Three, The Bund. In this, his fourth book, he shares recipes for bread, pastries, cakes and desserts that reflect his broad international experience. There are also extensive instructions on techniques and ingredients, and decoration tips. The text is accompanied by stunning photography by Aaron McLean. Clear technique shots, fabulous food photography and stunning shots from London, Padstow, Paris, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Shanghai give this book a truly international flavour.

Recipes include Apricot Brioche Breakfast Plait, Blueberry Cream Scones, Chocolate Chip Hot Cross Buns, Rye Swirl Bread, and Chinese Flower Steam Buns. Many of the recipes take a traditional delicacy from one side of the world and add a twist from the other side of the world - like Green Tea Madeleines, Chinese Five Spice Chocolate Almond Macaroons or Red Bean Lamingtons. Other recipes come straight from the country of origin, like Almond Croissants, from France or the good old Kiwi Mince and Cheese Pie.

Reviews & endorsements:

This book is as much fun to read as it is to cook from. A thorough introduction for beginners and an indispensible reference for experienced bakers. Truly a celebration of this eternal comfort food. Jereme Leung, founding chef/proprietor of the Whampoa Club, Shanghai and Beijing.

Dean Brettschneider has taught me a great deal about making really good bread. Rick Stein, The Seafood Restaurant, Padstow, Cornwall, England.

It is wonderful to meet a baker who understands the craft and has a passion that can inspire the general public. Dean is a breath of fresh air. David Laris, founding chef of Laris Restaurant & Slice Delicatessen, Shanghai.
