About the Author

GEORGE GREENSTEIN was a third-generation professional baker who owned and ran a Jewish bakery, The Cheesecake King, on Long Island for twenty years. There he baked his favorites, like Jewish rye, cheese, and cinnamon raisin breads. He is also the author of the James Beard Award-winning, Secrets of a Jewish Baker and A Jewish Baker's Pastry Secrets. He passed away in 2012.


"There are many excellent bread books, but only a few for the serious home baker are truly must-have. This is one of them. George Greenstein's knowledge is in his bones, in his hands, and in his heart. It all comes through in this classic collection of indispensable recipes and master techniques." --Peter Reinhart, author of The Bread Baker's Apprentice

"You could scratch the adjective 'Jewish' from the title of SECRETS OF A JEWISH BAKER . Although Mr. Greenstein, a professional baker, happens to be Jewish, he has written a fairly comprehensive general bread-baking book." --Florence Fabricant, New York Times

"An essential purchase for anyone serious about baking bread." --Newsday

"Packed with wisdom and useful tips." --Baltimore Sun

"While other bakers aim to educate readers about the nature of bread, Greenstein's purpose is purely gustatory. He wants us to bake, eat, and enjoy." --Vegetarian Times
