Dean is a global-based professional baker and patissier with an international following.

Award-winning author of twelve cookbooks & presenter and judge in multiple TV shows, Dean co-owns and is the founder of the successful artisan bakeries Baker & Cook and Plank Sourdough Pizza in Singapore.

He also has bakery interests in London and in the coming year Manila, UAE and Budapest.

Hailing from country New Zealand, Dean has been baking for as long as he can remember - his grandmother being his first major inspiration and influence. More than four decades later, his passion for maintaining the art of traditional Artisan baking has stirred him to pass on the skills of his New World Baking - traditional recipes but with his own twist of modern flavor and techniques - to those who join us at Brettschneider’s Baking & Cooking School. www.globalbaker.com
