Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

San Francisco's Tartine Bread owners Chad Robertson and Elizabeth Pruei receive frequent accolades as the premier bread bakers in America. In fact, they are joint recipients of a James Beard Outstanding Pastry Chef Award. The precision and care that they so clearly devoted to this elegant new bread book reminds one that Alice Waters once noted that their "quiet artisanal authority" was never weakened by aesthetic compromise. Quite simply, the bread book of 2010.

Publishers Weekly
Chad Robertson (co-owner, with his wife, Elisabeth Prueitt, of San Francisco's Tartine, Bar Tartine) brings his master Tartine Bread technique to those who may not have the chance to try the famed Bay Area loaves hot out of the oven. This "baker's guidebook" is divided into four parts: Basic Country Bread; Semolina and Whole-Wheat Breads; Baguettes and Enriched Breads; and Day-Old Bread. Robertson's basic recipe is explained in depth with numbered steps, and consists of making a natural leaven and baking in a cast-iron cooker. The author's passionate tone and tales of baking apprenticeships, along with top-notch step-by-step photos, elevate the title from mere manual to enjoyable read. The later sections include variations on the basic recipe; bread-to-use recipes for sandwiches; bruschetta; and salads and entrees made with croutons and breadcrumbs. The sophisticated and clean design, exceptional photos, and padded cover give the book a luxurious feel. (Nov.)

    Highly Recommend!

    A beautiful book. Beautifully written and photographed. Lots of photos. I've been reading different blogs about their experiences, both good and not so successful, baking this bread. I followed the directions to a 't', reading and re-reading the instructions over and over again to make sure I was doing things correctly. My starter is alive and active and looks and smells just like Mr. Robertson said it would. I baked my bread and it is absolutely delicious! It looks just like to pictures! Buy this book, you will not be disappointed. I understand that Chad Robertson is working on a whole grain bread book and I will be excited to purchase that book as well.

    A lifelong quest for the perfect loaf

    The search for the perfect loaf of bread takes Mr Robertson from being an apprentice breadmaker in a small town in France to a successful business in California. Very inspiring and helpful, with beautiful pictures.

    At first glance - fantastic cookbook

    To be honest, I've only had time to take a quick look through the book . . . as a CPA, I won't have time to play with the recipes until after April 15th. It appears to have great instruction and wonderful recipes.
