Baking with Bruno by Chef Bruno FeldeisenWhen Bruno Feldeisen left his native France he embarked on a journey to discover new culinary horizons, open spaces and exciting new flavours. This journey landed him in New York where his culinary love affair with North America began. In this new world, he cooked alongside chefs from every walk of life, in cities as vibrant as his curiosity. He discovered that food in North America was exciting, culturally rich and that the desserts were absolutely delicious. He also learned that this too was a land of baking, how centuries of immigrants from Holland, Germany, Italy and other distant places made this a special place of endless possibilities.

This exciting new book is Bruno’s ode to this journey-where a French baker from a world of very defined culinary rules explores a new land where the food possibilities, techniques and tastes are boundless.

Come share Chef Bruno’s journey where the sweet smells of baking create long-lasting memories!
