Don't underestimate this book,
This review is from: Tartine Bread (Hardcover)I very nearly did - and that would have been a mistake.
It is one of the most thorough and thoughtful introductions you could wish to find into the art (and science) of making naturally leavened breads.
Sourdough bread has become incredibly fashionable (and expensive) in recent years and so making your own at home is very tempting. It is not an easy process and you need a lot of patience. This elegantly produced book (with some stunning photography) takes you through all the necessary steps clearly without patronising the more experienced reader.
The first half takes you through a range of bread-making techniques and the rest is given over to some recipes using the breads. I intend to work my way through it all!
You certainly need a passion to embark on this sort of baking journey - this book could well inspire you to try.

Hi, could you tell me if the book follows the metric system for measuring? I'm quite interested in it but I am not good with the American measuring system:)

Sorry this has taken so long - but yes, it does give metric measurements!
