A co-worker just informed me that if I were in jail, I could call her for getaway assistance, on the strength of my sesame wheat bread.

I then made two more Tartine #3 loaves in progress, one oatmeal porridge/walnut oil, and one sprouted kamut. These showcase two of the newer techniques in the book, so I'm interested to see how they do. I added a touch of dessicated coconut flake to my oats, which I'm hoping will add something.

The oat and the Kamut were good--the sprouted amaranth was on the bitt

This is the first Tartine book I've purchased, and I got it because it's an exploration in baking with freshly-milled whole grains, and more diverse and ancient grains than just wheat. And also because the Tartine crew has a solid reputation for quality and authenticity. The recipes in this book tend to be very ambitious and advanced. I consider it aspirational as opposed to instructional, at least for the amount of time and energy I'm currently able to commit toward baking.

Buckwheat with Toasted Groats and Creme Fraiche (a favorite!)
Kamut 60%
Wheat-Rye-Caraway-Coriander (a favorite!)
Sprouted Einkorn
Sprouted Purple Barley

This is a wonderful primer for baking archival breads using whole grains. Many of the recipes Tartine has made famous have been revisited using sprouted and ancient or unusual grains, and the methods are very interesting. The writer uses wild yeast to leaven the dough, by mixing flours and water and lightly covering the batter so that the yeast can find its way in and make a sourdough starter. In addition to many bread varieties, there are a few pastry recipes. Not for the impatient or novice ...more

Were I a bread baker, this book may have been more my cup of tea. Everything looked chewy and healthy--not that that is a bad thing, it's just the impression I am left with. In its favor, this book would be an excellent primer for bakers seeking to explore baking with whole grains, including some dessert offerings. Caveat: what the desserts lack in a sense of decadence, they make up for with a sense of fiber.

Tartine No 3 is beautiful, and was obviously a massive project of love. The book has a strong aesthetic style and the results of the recipes all sound great. However, this feels like a thesis and not a cookbook. As a beginning baker (not a complete noob, but not an expert) I found it to be inaccessible.

An advanced continuation of Tartine Bread - you must be an advanced bread baker to appreciate the nuances of this book especially versed in the levain style natural fermented breads. The adage of whole grain explored in this book will tempt you to expand your bread making horizons.

Inspiring but hardly adaptable to the baking standards of the average household kitchen in real time. You would need a personal assistant to keep up with the timing required to pull off any of these recipes. More of a retirement project than a usable cookbook for me at this stage.

This book has a variety of selection. The problem is the index system is somewhat confusing. Some. The recipes are not quite easy to perform.
