    This cookbook is gorgeous, the recipes are approachable and the ingredients are not difficult to obtain. This is one of those cookbooks destined to be used often, splattered with ingredients, dog-eared and well-loved! Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for giving me this ARC in exchange for an honest review!

But whenever I see this word, another similar word springs to mind—author—and the food I recognize as authentic is real food that is unmistakably its creator’s own, as genuine as a handwritten manu¬script.” This book, its layout, the pictures, the recipes and the atmosphere it offers its readers practically scream “village bakery-quality from loving hands”. I just can’t get over how beautifully rustic this book and its content is. The recipe are saliva-inducing masterpieces that are not always meant for inexperienced hands, I have to admit that. I’m seriously considering getting the hardcopy of this one. You will mostly find recipes that suit beginner’s levels, but in some cases, this book also works with advanced methods and techniques you’ll have to practice a bit before mastering them to your satisfaction – especially if you are a perfectionist. And make sure to pay attention to the kitchen notes and lessons-learned (such as On Grains) they add to each recipe and in between chapters. Since we cannot learn until we admit what we don’t know/are not able to do, this book poses a great opportunity to everybody, who enjoys a challenge in the kitchen. “Tartine Bakery opened in 2002, and in the intervening 17 years, it has become an anchor for the neighbourhood, a defining institution for the city of San Francisco, and a beacon of taste and flavour for people the whole country over.” 🌘It reflects on new dietary restrictions such as the increasing occurrence of gluten intolerance and diet-related diseases such as diabetes and aims for a rich bud conscious combination of ingredients. 🌘The authors Elisabeth and Chas justice to the international nature of the book market of the 21st century and lists measurements in both cups and grams and temperatures in Fahrenheit and Celcius. 🌘They suggest variations of certain ingredients, for instance, according to season 🌘They give credit to their bakers when they came up with something featured in the book 🌘They give tips on how to serve, e.g. methods of cutting, decorative additions 🌘They give tips for substituting tin shape for one another 🌘They give tips on how to make up for the lack of certain equipment, e.g. deep-fat thermometers, however… 🌘…Having a kitchen machine or the knowledge of how to substitute the performance of a machine with muscle strength is a basis for this book I have never been to this bakery myself – albeit I’ve heard of it from an SF-based friend of mine I met in Dublin – but I can guarantee you: if you’re fan of Tartine, you’ll probably never want to leave your kitchen again except for seeking the original. The book is structured as follows FOREWORD BY ALICE WATERS INTRODUCTION Breakfast Tarts, Pies, Fruit Cakes Cookies Pastries and confections Holiday Basic Bakery Recipes OUR STAFF ON GRAINS (This was definitely the most familiar aspect of being a baker(‘s daughter)) INDEX ➺A bakery book about more than baking. This book does not only stand for good handcrafted quality bakery goods but also underlines the significance a decent handcraft shop has for its immediate surrounding. I can easily picture a lovely small bakery in Point Reyes Station that draws energy from the maritime location and the salty wind that comes along with it. The love with which the authors meet their occupation and the tight social bonds to relatives, costumers and employees that come along with it is touching. That is before people were too greedy to spend proper money on proper products and prefer 13-cent-paper-buns that literally taste like carton to fairly prices, taste-buds-exploding quality. “Tartine Bakery opened in 2002, and in the intervening 17 years, it has become an anchor for the neighbourhood, a defining institution for the city of San Francisco, and a beacon of taste and flavour for people the whole country over.” Being the daughter of a very skilled baker myself; I am thoroughly convinced that it is not only the bakery goods for sale that make a good bakery but also the significance it has for its neighbourhood and its customers. Really good bakeries don't only sell incredible bread and pie but also hold small workshops. My dad, for instance, used to opened up our garden which sat right next to the window of our fantastic little bakery, invited interested folks to learn about different seeds and flours and their origin and methods of processing. ⇝What I noticed as worthy of improvement 🌔As an example: the ingredients list says “1 lemon”. I would prefer to not have to scan the entire instructions to know what it is used for. For instance, if the zest were to be used, I’d make sure to get organic lemons or maybe check if I had some zest left in case it somehow cannot obtain organic lemons. 🌔I find it useful to know the time it takes to make a recipe, preferably divided into preparing/resting/baking 🌔A list of necessary equipment would be a good idea as well 🌔I was irritated by some of the general statements that are given in some individual recipes such as “in country x, y and z, THIS AND THAT cake is the most popular” and I just went uhhh, no, it actually isn’t? ________________ This eArc was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    I almost died from joy when I saw Tartine: A Classic Revisited on NetGalley, and then I was granted my request to review it (this is an honest review). I have the original Tartine (thank you Mrs. Julien). It is the cookbook I pull out when I need baking inspiration or life inspiration. Prueitt and Robertson put some thought into this update and added in some variations and many new recipes which makes it worth owning. Tartine is a baker’s cookbook. It is not for beginners.

Prueitt and Robertson put some thought into this update and added in some variations and many new recipes which makes it worth owning. Tartine is a baker’s cookbook. It is not for beginners. However, if you master the elements, you can turn out some impressive and creative bakes. Tartine: A Classic Revisited is also for experienced bakers and my one caveat about this book is that I think there are some typos in the measurements. Everything I baked turned out well, but the English Muffin dough took a lot more flour than the recipe called for, and the dimensions for rolling out the croissants were definitely written out incorrectly. I am hoping that these errors are a function of having an advanced reader copy. I didn’t try most of the recipes, so there may be other typos and problems I didn’t see. Tartine: A Classic Revisited feels a little more informal than the original. It’s not less formal in it’s techniques, but the addition of muffins, buns, more cookies and crackers gives a broader range of options for using this cookbook from a fancy dinner party dessert to a luxurious but comfy weekend coffee. When I made the brioche dough, I made a loaf of bread and some brioche jam buns. With the croissant dough, I made morning buns and some Gruyere croissants. I love that the recipes play around with different grains. I made the Einkorn variation of the Flakey Tart Dough and loved it. I don’t have a lot of access to non traditional flours, but as soon as I can get my hands on some teff flour, I’m trying that carrot cake. The handful of gluten free recipes are nice. I don’t have a problem with gluten, but I have enough friends who do that I appreciate the effort. It’s a beautiful and creative cookbook. Reading a protected PDF file on my laptop isn’t the best way to interact with a visual product, but even with Copyrighted stamped on every page, I could still appreciate the beauty of the beauty of the photographs.

But be forewarned, it may make you extremely hungry. A copy of Tartine's signature recipe the Morning Bun is worth the price of this book.

This would be the perfect book for anyone who enjoys baking, a lot of these recipes may seem a bit daunting at first look but once you break them down it doesn't seem as scary ha. It includes all the needed recipes to make every kind of pastry and dough you would need, so then when you find a recipe you want to make you can refer back to that and then off you go. This would be such an excellent addition to any keen bakers cook book collection!, the hardest thing is to decide what to make first.

The variety of goods made me extremely happy to come across as a person suffering from celiac disease -- I actually am looking forward to attempting the non-GF recipes with GF flour to see if I can get them to work similarly. There are a variety of cakes, cookies, muffins, and pies that both the celiac and the non-celiac can make at home. (Obviously I'm not telling anyone who has a celiac at home to bake non-GF stuff!) All of the ingredients for the GF recipes were also reasonable and did not include a lot of "exotic" or hard to find ingredients, one of my biggest gripes with GF baking in general.

    A nice variation of recipes, ones you may see in other books and others that may be new to you. Has images of the final product, if there is a certain technique that needs a visual there is that. Not a line per step, some are combined together in a small paragraph. Cookies, breakfast, tarts and more items to look at. Really nice.

    Tartine is one of my favorite bakeries, so I had to get their cookbook! My favorite recipes from this book so far: Pie Crust — this is my go to pie crust recipe now; very flaky and easy to work with. Banana Cream Pie — made this a few times already; hubby’s favorite birthday treat! Lemon Meringue Cake — no less than five components (Genoise , Lemon Syrup, Lemon Cream, Caramel and Italian Meringue); light, very lemony and not too sweet. So many more recipes I wanna try.

More exciting than I even imagined. The only thing that seems the same is the Tartine sensibility which balances earthiness with sophistication. All the baked goods feel homey yet also quite special. The instructions are clear and straightforward but many of the recipes, while not out of reach for an enthusiastic home baker, will require some finesse and expertise for execution. Note: this is just my initial impression after reading this edition cover to cover. I’ll probably have more thoughts after I bake from it.

    Cookbooks do not usually age well. Food trends change, we shift our focus away (or towards) different ingredients, and we even change our minds about what is/isn't healthy. Heck, even the way we plate and present dishes can make something look dated - I was thrilled to take some of my mother's old 70s and 80s cookbooks off of her hands, for example, but the photos in those books have me convinced I must be mistaken in thinking I had liked the stuff. All that said, NONE of that applies to Tartine' Cookbooks do not usually age well.

All that said, NONE of that applies to Tartine's original book. It really hasn't aged (it's not that old, either!). It was (and still is) a high-level cookbook that appeals on all levels. It is probably meant for people who are already good bakers, but it's written and styled in such a way that the rest of us can't help but want to give it a try. Anyway, I wondered why they would need a re-issue. Now that I have looked through this new version, I can see that they've taken the original and added even more to it. You may not need to own both Tartine books unless you really do bake all the time, but if you don't already have the original I would recommend adding this new one to your collection. The recipes are very well written, and if you pay attention carefully you should be able to follow them. Whether or not you think they are easy will depend on your skill level. You just have to remember that you do need to be conscious of what you are doing and take your time. As the introduction says, all about consistency and learning to trust your instincts. That's basic advice for bakers, but very true and very inspiring.

    What this newly revised edition of the Tartine cookbook allows is for home cooks to discover baking outside of the bland grocery store flours and delve into more interesting ingredients -- buckwheat, Einkorn, rye, etc.). While I treasure my original 2006 copy of Tartine, I am pleased to bake from this newly updated and expanded edition -- with 68 new recipes, along with 55 updated recipes there is so much to explore.

While I treasure my original 2006 copy of Tartine, I am pleased to bake from this newly updated and expanded edition -- with 68 new recipes, along with 55 updated recipes there is so much to explore. The recipes are arranged into seven chapters: 1) Breakfast, 2) Tarts, Pies, Fruit, 3) Cakes, 4) Cookies, 5) Pastries and Confections, 6) Holiday, and 7) Basic Bakery Recipes. I was also able to source all the ingredients at my local market or grocery store (I will recommend taking the time to source a good, green-coloured matcha -- the one I had didn't quite produce the colour effect I was looking for). While discussing ingredients used in the recipes, I'll take a moment to mention an additional section near the end of the book, "On Grains," where Robertson explains the evolution of their bakery and how it's intertwined with both technique and the quality of the flour used. There is a great respect for where they've come from but also for the present-day resurgence away from using or relying on all-purpose flour when so many other options are available. Baking is all about sharing and celebrating the everyday (not just the milestones). So, it was with these recipes I've baked that I've tried to spread a little joy around. When a place becomes so famous it can feel a bit untouchable, but I think what this collection of recipes is the truest, humblest offering to home bakers. I'll tell you right now: I've never felt like a baker. Most definitely a home cook but never a baker. It's not that I can't bake, I think I am never sure how the different techniques work together to produce a consistent outcome. And, while the recipes in the book seem challenging (they are, but in a good way), none of them are impossible. At times, the authors do a fine job of explaining how or why a recipe works. I also really appreciate that there are recipes for different occasions -- from a quick nosh at breakfast to sophisticated holiday treats such as the Buche de Noel. After baking up almost ten recipes I can tell you that everything tasted wonderful and I was pleased with the results. Even though the cookbook is brimming with gorgeous new recipes I chose to bake an old favourite to start with -- the Buttermilk Scones. They are one of my favourite recipes from the original cookbook and they baked up just like I remember: flaky and fine, and so delicious. Then I went straight for the Granola Bark recipe, which is not quite loose granola and not quite a granola bar but something in between. I loved how the recipe baked up: compact and firm! And, once the baking sheet full of granola gets broken into shard-like hunks you're free to either enjoy the hunks or crumble up on cereal, yogurt, or whatever's your fancy. I was happy to share the things I was baking from Tartine Revisited because everything turned out so well! There's a reason for this -- one of the ways to ensure a consistent outcome when baking is to weight all your ingredients. And, while Prueitt and Robertson provide both volume and metric measurements I urge you to always use a digital kitchen scale. Speaking from experience, I know that my baking has improved since I started using a scale. Whether it is a group of moms I meet for coffee, my daughter's teacher, playdate kiddies, or my afterschool walking buddy everyone got to enjoy Tartine. The most impressive recipe I made was the Matcha Streusel Tart -- from making the tart dough, almond cream, and streusel it seemed like a big job but what I found was that I could prep these different components over a couple of days so that on the final bake day it didn't seem like such an insurmountable task. I filled mine with raspberries and plums and it was delicious and totally looked like something you'd buy at, well, a fancy bakery (like Tartine!). A bonus of trying this recipe was that I had extra dough leftover so I baked up some Jam Tartlets, which are a fantastic after school snack (I made the heart version for my daughter and the bear ones for my walking buddy and her darling kids). The perfect sweet, little bite (or two) after a long day of learning. One of the new features of the revised edition is the inclusion of gluten free recipes (25 to be exact!). While it probably would have been helpful to add "gluten free" to the index to make it easier to find these recipes, they are there if you hunt them out. The gluten-free recipe I tried was the Salted Chocolate Buckwheat Cookies and let me tell you that they are incredible! I absolutely loved the chewy texture with a bit of crunch (from the cacao nibs) and I found the dark chocolate/buckwheat pairing to be a good one. I shared some with my daughter's teacher and the note she sent back told me she thought they were delicious! Maybe what you're wondering is if you need to buy the new Tartine cookbook if you have the original version? My answer: own both! There is so much to love about both books and enough that is different so that I think you can justify having two. Not to mention that the Gentl + Hyers photos in the revised edition are magical! Whether you're a novice or a master baker there are recipes to suit every urge and fancy. I'm looking forward to trying more recipes from this book -- the morning buns and croissants look amazing. Please note that this is an excerpt of a review posted to www.shipshapeeatworthy.wordpress.com I would like to take this opportunity to thank Raincoast Books and Chronicle Books for providing me with a free, review copy of this book. I did not receive monetary compensation for my post, and all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

All of the recipes I’ve made so far have gone on my short list of things I want to make again. The first recipe I made from it were the cheddar cheese oat crackers, pretty much an everything cracker with thyme, marjoram, cumin, caraway, sesame, and poppy. The second, granola bark with hazelnuts, rolled oats, and almond flour along with flax seeds, sesame seeds, cinnamon, and vanilla. And finally, yesterday (and today’s breakfast), cranberry upside-down cake, with a great crunchy-caramel cranberry topping once the cake is turned right-side up. All of the recipes were easy—although I chose not to stand on top of the granola bark “to really get a good compression”. There are preparation-heavy recipes as well. I’m not sure if the second recipe is meant to scare off readers with the instructions or entice them with the photographs—they look like amazing English muffins. However, they also require not only starting the dough the night before (which attracts me to the recipe), but very authentically getting up nearly three hours ahead of breakfast to make them (which does not). You will feel like a real chef if you make them. Depending on the ingredients, many of the measurements are given in both volume and weight. Looking at the granola bark recipe, some of the weights are actually volumes—milliliters. The column is really for metric measurements, but ends up usually being weight. “For accuracy, we recommend weighing ingredients.” I only weighed the crème fraiche for the upside-down cake, and then only in reverse because I didn’t want to pour the thick cream into a measuring cup and then into the bowl. So I measured the jar, then measured the jar again after I’d gotten as much of the cream out as I could, and then added a few tablespoons of buttermilk to make up the difference. Many of the recipes call for crème fraiche, which is most easily acquired by mixing a little buttermilk into some heavy cream and letting it sit in the kitchen for a few days. I did this for the cranberry upside-down cake, as I did not see any crème fraiche at the grocery store. In honor of this recipe, I’ve added an @buttermilk tag to my recipe list; I almost never make recipes that include buttermilk because the remaining buttermilk goes bad. Since I only had one recipe in my list before, an Irish soda bread from The Larousse Treasury of Country Cooking, I have now doubled my list of buttermilk baked goods. If I decide to add more buttermilk recipes to my repertoire, this book calls for it in two scone recipes, Einkorn donuts, devil’s food layer cake, and chocolate soufflé. A lot of the recipes are also gluten free—the cracker and granola bark were, using oat flour and almond flour, respectively. So is the very first recipe in the book, banana muffins. This is a nicely-made book, too. It has a slightly wider ratio than most books, and easily stays open on the kitchen counter. It also sports a classy ribbon bookmark, which I’m currently using to mark banana-date tea cake. Among the other recipes I currently have bookmarked are chocolate hazelnut tart and hazelnut biscotti, but I’ll probably be making a lot of the baked goods here—it will probably become my go-to book when I want to bake something new.

Tartine: A Classic Revisited is a beautifully photographed love letter to high end patisserie for the home kitchen. Released 1st Oct 2019 by Chronicle, it's 328 pages and available in hardcover and ebook formats. This is an updated and re-photographed extended version of the 2006 original with ~50% more content than the original. These are lovely, many are challenging (what I think of as 'free weekend' baking), but many are perfectly achievable in the everyday home kitchen. The scones, for example, are my new standard go-to recipes for those baking days. I liked that the authors provide a wealth of tips and tricks for getting consistently good results and troubleshooting less-than-desirable occurrences. I loved that nothing seemed beyond the scope of inclusion; I never thought that English muffins were anywhere close to achievable outside of a commercial bakery, but these are good . (Note: the recipe calls for 510g of bread flour, I needed considerably more to get a workable dough). The book is arranged in a logical accessible format: breakfast fare followed by tarts pies and fruits, glorious cakes, cookies, pastries, holiday baking, and a nice smattering of generalized recipes for things like basic dough, creams, sauces, and puddings. It also includes a cross referenced index. Rounding out the book is the best essay I've ever seen on grain processing and flour composition. The die-hard lab geek in me was in awe. I'm not anywhere close to being a baker or really even a serious foodie, but it struck me as odd that I had never really considered the composition of one of the most basic and ubiquitous of ingredients before. This is a good cookbook with a nice spread of recipes from the very basic to the gloriously complex. Most of the ingredients are easily sourced and familiar. All recipes have ingredients given in both US and metric measurements. The step by step directions are clear and easy to follow. I really liked the informal and inviting text and the asides sprinkled throughout. In the introduction to the Lemon Meringue Cake recipe (p. 155) for example, the authors talk about the evolution of their cakes and other desserts toward less sweet presentations. They provide parallel measurements for the sweeter version as well. Many of the recipes include kitchen notes and tips. Nearly all are photographed clearly and well. This is a solid reference and classic presentation. Five stars. Superlative. Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.

    It’s been 13 years since the first Tartine cookbook was published, and some people might ask why we need to revisit it. But anyone paying attention to baking in those years knows that a lot has changed. The way we eat has changed. The way we bake has changed. The grains that are available to us has changed. So taking the time to revisit this cookbook after all that time and to update the recipes for a new generation of bakers and a new assortment of flours is actually an inspired idea. The basic It’s been 13 years since the first Tartine cookbook was published, and some people might ask why we need to revisit it. But anyone paying attention to baking in those years knows that a lot has changed. The way we eat has changed. The way we bake has changed. The grains that are available to us has changed. So taking the time to revisit this cookbook after all that time and to update the recipes for a new generation of bakers and a new assortment of flours is actually an inspired idea. The basics are still the same. Tartine became a legend because its dedication to the highest quality ingredients and their exacting standards. Their consistency in those two areas have brought them much love and success. And now authors Elizabeth Prueitt and Chad Robertson are sharing the things they’ve learned over the last decade. This new edition combines 55 of their favorite recipes, updated, with 67 new recipes for home bakers who are willing to stretch themselves in their baking. These are not beginning recipes. Some of the ingredients they choose are not things that most people keep in their pantry. You may have to spend more for the rye flour or the buckwheat flour, for the matcha powder or the best chocolate. But using the best ingredients and mastering these techniques can make you a master baker. With recipes for muffins, tarts, cakes, pies, eclairs, and brownies, Tartine may look at first glance as a cookbook for anyone. But dig a little deeper and find the recipes for the Matcha Creme Brulee Tart, Lemon Meringue Cake, Salted Chocolate Buckwheat Cookies, Black Tea Blondies with Caramel Swirl, and Steamed Gingerbread Pudding with Bourbon Hard Sauce. Clearly this is no average pastry cookbook. It is exceptional. Filled with lots of notes and insights into baking, Tartine: A Classic Revisited is also packed with inspiration. The lush photography takes you behind the scenes at the bakery and shows off dozens of gorgeous, mouth-watering, delectable pastries. With gluten-free recipes, less sugar, and more grain options, these recipes are updated for today’s bakers, but with all the flavor, texture, and perfection of the originals. Just like all the other Tartine cookbooks, this will be an instant classic, a gorgeous gift, and a long-time collectible. Don’t miss this one for all your favorite home bakers! Galleys for Tartine: A Classic Revisited were provided by Chronicle Books through NetGalley, with many thanks.

From the publisher, as I do not repeat the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it as they do it better than I do 😸. This brilliantly revisited and beautifully rephotographed book is a totally updated edition of a go-to classic for home and professional bakers—from one of the most acclaimed and inspiring bakeries in the world. Tartine offers more than 50 new recipes that capture the invention and, above all, deliciousness that Tartine is known for—including their most requested recipe, the Morning Bun. Favourites from the original book are here, too, revamped to speak to our tastes today and to include whole-grain and/or gluten-free variations, as well as intriguing new ingredients and global techniques. More than 150 drop-dead gorgeous photographs from acclaimed team Gentl + Hyers make this compendium a true collectable and must-have for bakers of all skill levels. This is a stunning book that bakers will adore: the food is STUNNINGLY photographed and I want to cut all the photos out and frame them and put them on my kitchen wall. The recipes are top-notch and not difficult to understand as the directions are clear and concise. I am not a baker but this book would make me think that I could do it and not end up on "Canada's Worst Baker" show. (I once had a cake made from a mix turn into a lava explosion all over my oven - it didn't bake but it oozed all over the place!) This book is a feast for the eyes and any serious baker would devour this book and cook their way through it. As always, I try to find a reason to not rate with stars as I love emojis (outside of their incessant use by "Social Influencer Millennials" on Instagram and Twitter) so let's give it 🎂🥧🍩🥖🥮 (I have not read the original book to compare it to this one, but I am sure that it is wonderful as well!)

    Beautiful But with Errors Still This is a beautifully photographed cookbook. It's an updated version of a previous cookbook put out by the bakery with the same name as the title, which is located in San Francisco. It has all the divisions you would expect in a baking book, like breakfast, cakes, and fruit pies. There are even two more unusual sections, one specifically for holidays and one of bakery basics, like tart dough variations and sweet prepared creams.

It's an updated version of a previous cookbook put out by the bakery with the same name as the title, which is located in San Francisco. It has all the divisions you would expect in a baking book, like breakfast, cakes, and fruit pies. There are even two more unusual sections, one specifically for holidays and one of bakery basics, like tart dough variations and sweet prepared creams. The recipes, as you might imagine, are for the most part complex and so are ideal for the dedicated home baker who likes to try to reproduce what is made in the finest bakeries. As stated in other reviews, there are some issues with correct numbers for ingredient amounts, like in the English Muffin recipe, and yields (the Maine croissant recipe). I haven't inspected all the other recipes myself to see if there may be any other questionable amounts, but of course, wrong amounts are always disturbing to find in a baking cookbook because baking is not just an art, it's a science that relies on precise measures. The publisher's website does have errata for this book, giving a new amount for the water for the poolish of the English muffin recipe. I am reviewing this book greater than 6 months after its publication, and I do not see where the Kindle edition on Amazon has been updated to reflect the proper amount for this poolish. It is relatively simple to update an eBook, so I'm not quite sure why this has not been done yet. Naturally, they'd have to wait for the next printing for the hardcover, but eBooks can be corrected quickly and easily. All in all, though, I did enjoy looking through these recipes, but I would be afraid to try out too many for fear of other errors. I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review. My book blog: https://www.readingfanaticreviews.com

    I first heard of Tartine from Smitten Kitchen’s Blood Orange, Almond, and Ricotta cake (https://smittenkitchen.com/2016/01/bl... ), which is a fabulous treat and gluten-free I stumbled across a few years ago. I knew I needed to look into the Tartine Bakery cookbooks… I just haven’t really gotten to it yet.

Thus, I was so surprised and excited to see this book, an update of their previous cookbooks in Netgalley! This book doesn’t seem like it’s for the beginning baker. There are a lot of steps like making your own doughs and different components like pastry cream. I actually think I’m about the target audience—someone who is pretty confident in the kitchen but isn’t quite clear on how a genoise is different from normal cake. Someone who wants to take their baking game from “normal American home cook” to “yeah, I might last a few weeks on Great British Bake Off.” As I am somewhat gluten sensitive, I was happy to see a handful of gluten-free recipes (though I wish they were indexed as such). The photography in this book is gorgeous, and the instructions seem pretty clear. The only thing that confused me a bit was the fascination with matcha! Tartine Bakery is located in San Francisco, so I suppose that’s it? But there are SO MANY recipes that have “matcha variations!” Not my cup of tea (har har), but fine.

This recipe book contains previously published and revised as well as brand-new recipes. I found this book to be an exceptionally great recipe book.

The photos were beautiful and the step-wise instructions very detailed and helpful (maybe not fool-proof, but getting very close). I also liked that the measurements for the ingredients were listed in both cups and metric. Additionally, the recipes contained instruction for how to store the finished product and how long it will keep. I was absolutely (positively) surprised to find a handful glutenfree recipes, in fact, the first recipe is gluten-free. If I counted correctly, there were 6 glutenfree recipes, including a pie crust, which makes all the pies recipes in the book (potentially) gluten-free too. In addition, there are recipes for jams/preserves and confections that are naturally gluten-free.

Mouth-watering photographs abound! Really stunning. The recipes themselves are well laid out with ingredients; method and kitchen notes or other information required all together. I especaially liked the fact that the measurements of the ingredients were in two forms (cups and teaspoons etc along with ml and kg). This is really useful. I really liked the versatility of several recipes, for example the brioche. You get given the recipe PLUS you get recipes on how to use both the brioche dough and baked bread in various other ways. Very practical. Best chapter? I'd have to say "Cookies"! I can especially see my children having fun in the kitchen with those recipes. Thank you to NetGalley and the publishers for allowing me the chance to read this book.

I am excited to try a lot of the recipes including the glazed croissants, pain du chocolate, egg and bacon brioche and of course the morning buns. I can't wait to attempt some of those recipes and if they are easy enough, we just might feature this book at a future cooking demo. The pictures alone will attract our community to this book and we can't wait to share it with everyone. We will consider adding this title to our Cookbook collection at our library. That is why we give this book 5 stars.

The photo of the savory Cake Au Olives with olives, cheese, and ham makes my mouth water. The instructions are clear and concise, and even newer bakers can make these recipes with success. I highly recommend this book.

Also some of photographs shows the procedure used with the croissant dough which is helpful. I was amazed at the number of recipes in various categories that are contained in this book. Some are easy and others are a bit more complex but the detailed instructions will help you archive the result if you take your time to take it step by step.

One of the things I really liked about this book that unlike some cookbooks it does not repeat the same information over and over. If a certain recipe requires a specific filling or dough it doesn't add all that info to each recipe but names it with the page number to go to. Yes you will be flipping some pages but it is the more efficient way of doing the layout.
