“Metropolitan Bakery has long been known as Philadelphia's best. Now all their fine recipes are available in a beautiful book, filled with useful information for the home baker. Finally, everyone who can't get to the bakery can enjoy these excellent and imaginative breads and pastries right at home.” ―Nick Malgieri , author of Perfect Cakes and How to Bake
“Beautifully presented and clearly and lovingly explained, these recipes will inspire any baker to head for the kitchen. Whether you're an experienced bread maker, a weekend cookie baker, an old pie-hand, or a newcomer to the myriad delights of baking, this collection is bound to find a place among your favorites.” ―Dorie Greenspan, author of Paris Sweets and Baking with Julia
“This book is like having the keys to the kitchen of a favorite neighborhood bakery.” ―Maury Rubin, chef/owner, The City Bakery, New York City
“I was born and raised in Philadelphia, and if Metropolitan Bakery had existed when I was a kid, who knows--I might never have left! James Barrett and Wendy Born have created bakery and café treasures throughout the city, and I'm thrilled that they were willing to share their fabulous recipes in this book. With its publication they are, deservedly, no longer Philly's little secret.” ―Peter Reinhart, author of American Pie: My Search for the Perfect Pizza and The Bread Baker's Apprentice
