Publisher Comments:

In the tradition of great artisan bread bakers, James Barrett and Wendy Smith Born share a passionate commitment to bread based on traditional baking methods. Their vision has helped make the award-winning Metropolitan Bakery in Philadelphia a favorite destination for more than 13,000 customers each week. Now, just in time for its 10th anniversary celebration, co-owners Barrett and Born reveal the secrets that will allow you to enjoy the bakery's best breads, pastries, cookies, muffins, focaccia, flatbreads, cakes, and other baked goods at home.

The Metropolitan Bakery Cookbook offers more than 100 mouthwatering recipes for favorites such as Potato-Rosemary Bread, Country Bread, Brioche, Cappuccino Muffins, Fig-Oat Scones, Cinnamon Swirl Danish, Chocolate Layer Cake, Plum and Blackberry Crisps, Lemon Bars, Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies, Spiced Cornmeal Crackers, and the bakery's signature French Berry Rolls. Also included are the "go-withs" that loyal customers seek out, like savory spreads and jams, salads, quiches, chutneys, and sandwiches. Accompanied by more than 75 photographs, these delicious and easy-to-prepare recipes--a compilation of both sweet and savory--are certain to win Metropolitan Bakery a new legion of devotees.

Established in 1993, Metropolitan Bakery is an artisan bread bakery specializing in handmade European rustic breads and pastries. Consistently voted "Best of Philly," the bakery has six retail locations throughout the Philadelphia area and supplies breads and pastries to more than 100 restaurants and gourmet stores.
