My current favorite cookbook. I reviewed it here:

And I made a recipe from it, 'Almond-Lemon Tea Cake' which was crazy delicious and quite possibly the best citrusy cake I have ever had. You can see the process/recipe here:

Oh Yum. Updated

I don't live in San Francisco and can't get to Tartine but I yearn for bakery treats like these. Tartine is a landmark for US bakers and lovers of high quality, creative baking.

Tartine has issued several cookbooks over the years and all should be on the serious baker's shelves. This new book updates some classic recipes and adds some modern ones like gluten free banana muffins and matcha flavored this and that.

These are classic recipes which means that they are not simple. But the writing is clear enough that the serious beginner baker can proceed with confidence.

I received a review copy of " Tartine: A Classic Revisited 68 All-New Recipes + 55 Updated Favorites" by Elisabeth Prueitt and Chad Robertson from Chronical Books through

This is a lovely how-to reference for home cooks. Basic recipes like Aioli, Tzatziki, Corn Tortillas, and Applesauce are introduced with a descriptive paragraph that explains the process and various versions and uses for each recipe. I think that is so useful and interesting, and a good opportunity to add kitchen knowledge to you every home cook's skill set.

The directions are clear, and allow for the cook to use different utensils based on what they have on hand. In other words, you are not required to have specialty equipment for the recipes, standard kitchen tools can be used. Also, for some of the recipes with multiple processes, step-by-step photographs are provided to help you along.

In addition to the basics, the cookbook includes less common, delicious-sounding dishes like Ancho Pepper Soup, and Eggplant Parmesan Gratin with Fresh Tomatoes and Quinoa. The recipes that require more complicated techniques include spatchcocked roast chicken and holiday turkey.
Recipes are suggested to help you pull compatable dishes together for a full menu for different occasions or events.

This is not a vegetarian cookbook, and it features many meat dishes. There were also some great vegetarian dishes, and recipes that sounded so good that I wanted to make small adjustments so that they could be made vegetarian.

With the in-depth explanations and the thorough instructions for every recipe, this is a cookbook that will stand the test of time, and would be a valuable reference to a home cook. Recommended for all home cooks.

I've loved this book ever since it was given to me a couple of years ago. I love it even more since a recent visit to San Francisco, of which a visit to Tartine Bakery was one of many highlights. Great stuff!
