The recently published Tartine No.3 had been fermenting a lot of anxiety among passionate bakers, including me. So many of us have been itching for the book's publication. I ordered both a digital and hard-copy this past weekend. So far, I skimmed through the book on all my Apple devices. I like it, a lot. It makes me think of a Rick Steve's style traveler-meets-bread-geek book.
Chad Robertson's picture laden manifesto celebrates (and illustrates) so much of the craft that inspires us bread geeks; from fermentation methods to the importance of intuition, as well as sometimes stumbling into lucky mistakes!
This book is a great addition to any baker's library. It is clear, concise, and beautiful, a picture book for those already adept at baking, and something to teach those just starting. Go find it and enjoy!
