Dan Lepard is to baking what Lewis Hamilton is to Formula One. - The Observer After 40 minutes in the oven my loaf emerges to a round of applause (mine). It is quite simply the most beautiful, flour-dusted, crisp-crusted, heaven-scented, honey-coloured loaf I could ever have hoped for. It is the loaf of my dreams, a loaf with which to celebrate not just the ending of a diet, but life itself. Mr Lepard, I love you. - The Observer Dan Lepard - one of the first bakers and writers in the UK to get people interested in honing their baking skills - The Telegraph
