Synopses & Reviews
Two of the most gorgeous, celebrated, and bestselling baking books of the past five years, from San Francisco's beloved Tartine Bakery, are presented together for the first time. A richly textured slipcase that captures the rustic elegance of a baker's apron features both Tartine and Tartine Bread. Including recipes for luscious pastries, unforgettable desserts, and inimitable breads, and awash in award-winning photography, there is no better gift for baking enthusiasts than Tartine: The Boxed Set.
"Tartine is a remarkable book that allows the home baker to recreate breakfast pastries, tarts, cakes, and puddings from the renowned California bakery.Most importantly, many of the desserts from the book have a rustic charm but are still delicious and beautiful enough to be showstoppers. The photography, taken behind the scenes at the Tartine Bakery, captures the dream-like quality of the desserts and the remarkable skill of the artisans who make them." - The Gastronomers Bookshelf, December 2009
"this is my favorite bakery in the United States." -- Mark Bittman, The New York Times
About Tartine Bread:
"...the most beautiful bread book yet published..." -- The New York Times
"[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
