The Beard Foundation presents Greg Patent's book entitled A Baker’s Odyssey.
A Baker's Odyssey is a rich collection of recipes and culinary history, all gleaned from Greg Patent's exhaustive research in the American home kitchens of immigrants from around the world. Through his travels across the country, Patent learned the secrets to traditional baked goods originating from thirty-two different nations. From Scotland and Austria to India and Thailand to Mexico, Norway, and West Africa, the recipes represent the best of each culture's beloved culinary traditions. Patent provides detailed information on the origin of each recipe and its ingredients, and gives a real sense of the cultural heritage behind each dish.
