Baker and Cook
- About the Author
Baker & Cook started out as a single bakery food store in a quiet suburban neighbourhood in Singapore. In a short span of five years, Baker & Cook is now a household name with 10 outlets in Singapore, including two sourdough pizzerias and a cooking school, and three outlets in the Philippines, with more to open in other locations around the world.
In this book, Dean Brettschneider, founder and co-owner of Baker & Cook, Plank Sourdough Pizza and Brettschneider’s Baking & Cooking School, shares the success story behind Baker & Cook in full and candid detail. He also provides expert advice on bread- and pastry-making techniques, and tops it off with more than 60 recipes for breads, cakes and other bakery-related foods, including the bestsellers at Baker & Cook and Plank. Whether you’re a fan of Baker & Cook, someone looking to understand how the business works or an avid baker, this book promises something for everyone.
