Product Details


A Slow Rise is the story of Dan’s journey in baking, with patience, passion, and dedication to an art he conceives of systemically. Through stories and recipes, he recounts his explorations and business developments in serving the Hudson Valley communities, and feeding the Ameri­can bread tradition at large.”
—APOLLONIA POILÂNE, author of Poilâne

“In A Slow Rise, Daniel Leader transcends the bound­aries of traditional bread baking to explore the artistry behind an array of beloved baked goods. Through Leader’s expert guidance, A Slow Rise emerges as a seminal work that celebrates the joy of baking in its many forms, encour­aging bakers to cultivate patience, skill, and creativity in their culinary ventures. It is an essential read for anyone eager to dis­cover the transformative power of baking, shared with heart and unparalleled ex­pertise.”
—FRANCISCO MIGOYA, head of innovation at Noma and coauthor of Modernist Bread

“Leader’s recipes in A Slow Rise are the delicious ‘result of every piece of knowl­edge and experience [he’s] acquired over the years,’ and aren’t we the luckier for it. From Fig and Pistachio Rye Bread to Yeasted Baguettes and sourdough croissants (and even a Chilled Chocolate Tart for the sweets-lovers among us), I want to make—and eat—everything.”
—JESSIE SHEEHAN, author of Snackable Bakes
“Dan Leader is a wise and seasoned baker and a terrific storyteller. In A Slow Rise he shares many fun and interesting experiences from his past forty years of baking. This book is packed with information on the most important topics of today—local flours, fermentation, and sourdough—making it an essential book for all bakers. Dan has taken the time to research the best ways to do ev­erything; he gives clear instructions and timing for every process, and he shares a whole bakery full of deliciousness between the front and back covers.”
—AMY SCHERBER, founder of Amy’s Bread
