Daniel Leader was one of the first champions of artisanal bread baking in this country; he founded Bread Alone Bakery in New York's Hudson Valley in the early 1980s. Now a classic, Leader's "Bread Alone", won the IACP award for best baking book in 1994. In 2008, Leader won his second IACP award for Local Breads. Dan has published 2 more books Simply Great Breads and Panini Express. His new cookbook, LIVING BREAD came out October 2019.
At twenty-two, Daniel Leader stumbled across the intoxicating perfume of bread baking in the back room of a Parisian boulangerie, and he has loved and devoted himself to making quality bread ever since. He went on to create Bread Alone, the now-iconic bakery that has become one of the most beloved artisan bread companies in the country. Today, professional bakers and bread enthusiasts flock to Bread Alone's headquarters in the Catskills from all over the world to learn Dan's signature techniques and baking philosophy.
