"[Chad Robertson's] earnest and lovely Tartine Bread (Chronicle Books, $40) shares secrets of the naturally fermented kind. A co-owner of the beloved Tartine Bakery in San Francisco's Mission District (I've almost missed flights standing in line for croquet monsieur and bread pudding) are worth attempting. And his 37 pages of detailed instructions and clear photographs are proof he really wants you to succeed. - Christine Mulhke, New York Times Book Review, December 5, 2010

4.0 out of 5 stars May not be for the beginner, but you can certainly give it a try. 7 Feb 2013
By Jason W. Peters - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have tried on a few occasions to bake my own bread. I do enjoy cooking and have several really good cook books. I have made a couple of Julia Child's bread recipes and they have always turned out wonderful. The Tartine recipe is very simple to make, but it does require a lot more time. Like Julia and Chad both point out that the flavor develops over and extended bulk rise. So it not alot of work on your part, but rather dough raising in a bowel.

The great thing about Chad's book is he gives you a very detail written description of what you should expect to see, smell and taste during all phases of the process. Only time will give you the confidence to know you have everything in hand. That being said, even though I a still learning to shape my dough and score the top to get that final oven spring, my bread (Chad's recipe) is fantastic? I have never seen or had so much open and aerated crumb.

They have include many photos to show you all the key steps along the way. No figure 1, example 2 comments to go with it and I think the book is better for it. You can refer back to the pictures while you are making this to compare what you are doing to his examples.

If you do need some help or hint's checkout the Recipes for Tartine bread group on face book and see what others have already done...

Others have mentioned there disappointment with the book not having more recipes, but what Chad has done with this book is give you the tools, technique and confidence to image your own bread creations. He also includes some wonderful recipes on what to do with the bread. I made the savory bread pudding for my wife the other night... OMG this is now one of our favorites side dishes and it is so easy to prepare?

Don't past this one up. If you like good bread this book is for you!

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost Perfect 23 April 2013
By Kat - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The box set is pretty much perfect except for one thing: the publisher. For some reason, in about 8 pages of one the books, they printers printed 2 different pages on the same page. This is especially frustrating since the pages that are printed over are the base recipes in the book so I can't read either recipe that is printed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Set of Books 25 Aug 2013
By Martin J. Rafanan - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Very seldom does a set of cook books live up to their billing but in this case, you can't go wrong. If you are interested in baking and want to duplicate the "tartine method" in your own kitchen, you will find this set of books extremely helpful. I've used the Tartine Bread Book to make incredible bread in my own kitchen following the directions in the book. Although this is time and technique intensive, the outcomes are spectacular. I'm enjoying these books immensely and they are ACTUALLY getting used! That says it all. Congrats to Chad Robertson and his crew.
