Tartine BreadChad Robertson
This is the bread bible for the home baker or professional bread-maker. It comes from Chad Robertson, a man many consider to be the best bread baker in the United States, and co-owner with Elizabeth Prueitt of San Francisco's Tartine Bakery.
Only a handful of bakers have learned the bread science techniques Robertson has developed. To him, bread is the foundation of a meal, the center of daily life, and each loaf tells the story of the baker who shaped it. Chad developed his unique bread over two decades of apprenticeship with the finest artisan bakers in France and the United States, as well as experimentation in his own ovens. Readers will be astonished at how elemental it is.
Bread making the Tartine Way: Now it's your turn to make this bread with your own hands. Clear instructions and hundreds of step-by-step photos put you by Chad's side as he shows you how to make exceptional and elemental bread using just flour, water, and salt.
