Stan Ginsberg, a native of Brooklyn, grew up in a close-knit neighborhood where generations lived side by side. He learned to cook and bake from his grandmother, who lived just upstairs in the same apartment building, and has continued cooking and baking ever since. His baking repertoire is eclectic, with a bias towards traditional Jewish and European-style breads and pastries – and, of course, pizza.
Stan started The New York Bakers (www.nybakers.com) in 2009, largely as a result of his own frustration with not finding the flours he wanted at reasonable prices. It has since grown into a significant resource for home bakers, with a constantly expanding range of equipment, supplies and ingredients.
