About Dean

My desire to learn, and subsequent love of baking, started early. I’ve been loving it since I was the only boy in the home economics class while my mates were all out kicking holes in fences or something. Not that you can’t be passionate about kicking holes in fences, but you are seriously limiting your career options.

Every hour, every minute, every second of every day, I live and breathe bakery. I have spent years perfecting my craft, developing recipes, understanding design and ultimately learning what makes baking not just great, but exceptional at all levels. My childhood memories are about going to the local baker and buying freshly baked breads, cakes, pastries and doughnuts. The smell of freshly baked bread is universal and adored all over the world.
