Tartine Bread
Chad Robertson



Perhaps we all admire most in talents we ourselves forfeit? Alas, I haven't skills for cooking nor baking. I shall present these snapshots for their visual allure, with hopes that others shall perhaps make more fitful use of this book while I may only enjoy it for the photographs within. …

P.S. This volume's layouts lent themselves to full-spread shots but I'd be happy to send close-ups if you're particularly interested?


Trained in France, co-owner of Tartine Bakery in San Francisco, Chad Robertson is often considered to be the unsurpassed bread baker in the United States. 'Tartine Bread' is certainly a most visually compelling and passion inducing volume on the art of baking!

Commencing with the elemental country bread, journeying through a vast array of more complex recipes, and concluding in a section of sweet and savoury dishes, Chad Robertson indeed proves that 'bread is the foundation of a meal, the center of daily life, and each loaf tells the story of the baker who shaped it'.

I should also add: the photographs within this volume is most artfully captured by San Francisco based photographer: Eric Wolfinger.
