For the home or professional bread-maker, this is the book of the season, with more than 50 recipes and over 200 step-by-step photographs, instructing how to make master baker Chad Robertson's legendary bread at home. It comes from a man many consider to be the best bread baker in the United States: Chad Robertson, co-owner of Tartine Bakery in San Francisco, a city that knows its bread. To Chad, bread is the foundation of a meal, the centre of daily life, and each loaf tells the story of the baker who shaped it. He 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. A hundred photographs from years of testing, teaching, and recipe development provide step-by-step inspiration, while additional recipes provide inspiration for using up every delicious morsel. This is a bread baker's handbook. A master formula for basic bread with many variations forms the backbone of the book, which also includes yeasted breads and recipes for sweet and savoury foods made with days-old bread. Chad's mastery of breadmaking and work with great artisanal bakers in the US and France, as well as his philosophy of baking, are features of this book.

Great book. Too few copies, too many holds. The Ottawa Library need to invest in more copies of this book. I ended up buying my own.

Excellent book. Took only a few things I needed out of it to make a couple awesome breads.

Extremely detailed basic recipe. It's about 60 pages long - unbelievable! But once you've followed the recipe once or twice, you realize that the basic recipe is actually quite straightforward, and not that much work, actually. The bread it produces is amazingly delicious.

Still reading and baking with this one. I dont want to make a very good review as that will make the book more difficult to get next time i want it.

These recipes require more work than I am willing to put into bread.
