This is a much anticipated baking book from The Model Bakery, mother-daughter bakery with a big fan base. It's the definitive guide to the best authentic bread, pastry, and dessert classics from a hometown artisanal bakery located in tiny St. Helena in the heart of Northern California's wine country. Fan-favourite recipes that cause lines out the bakery door, such as their famous English muffins, can now be enjoyed at home. The book will be clearly written by a veteran baking book author and beautifully photographed by a veteran photographer of baking books.
