It will cover everyday loaves like baguettes, ciabatta, and whole grain breads, as well as loaves for special occasions, including Beaujolais Bread, Jalapeño Cheddar Bread, and Lionel Vatinet's celebrated sourdough boule. A chapter of delectable soup and sandwich recipes will inspire you to create the perfect accompaniments. The book offers a detailed introduction to bread baking, 65 recipes, and 350 full-color photographs.

In 1999, he coached the American team in the World Cup of Baking tournament to their first ever First Place win, and he has served as a baking consultant for Panera Bread, La Brea, and Zabar's. Educated as a baker's apprentice in France, Lionel remains true to the pledge he gave when inducted as a Les Compagnons du Devoir guild member to educate others in the art of baking. He owns La Farm Bakery in Cary, North Carolina, and regularly teaches baking courses there.
