I have been baking my own bread for over 10 years. I fell in love with the no knead recipe that was all over the Internet a few years ago. It was a revelation, but that pales in comparison to the tartine bread book!
Since I first tried the basic country bread recipe, I never looked back at no knead! This recipe is very similar to no knead(there is NO kneading with tartine!), but it deploys stretch and fold. It is a 3 day process...but it really is not labor intensive. I own a stone mill and grind my own flour. I usually use 30% whole wheat I grind myself and 70% store bought organic white flour. I am now experimenting with sprouting, drying and grinding that into flour. The recipe is consistently good every time! I recommend this book highly. For beginners it may be a bit overwhelming, but if you follow all the steps, I believe you will be amazed at what comes out of your oven and into your mouth!

It all started with a gift of starter made from instructions in Tartine Bread book. I had to buy the book and give it a try myself. Boy am I ever glad I did. Now each week I'm baking artisan bread that is wonderfully crusty and satisfying. It's not difficult...maybe a bit tricky...but so worth the time. And it fits perfect with my new 'working from home' schedule. I give the dough a min or two attention periodically throughout the day and take great warm bread out of the oven in time for dinner. This no-knead bread doesn't go stale 'cut side down' on my bread board all week. The problem is having enough to last the week. I might have to start baking it twice a week! It's really amazing!

First thing, this isn't your typical "cookbook". I had to re-read the "recipe" for the country bread multiple times and still to this day need to re-read it occasionally.

The bread IS the best tasting bread that I have ever made, but oh man...the time and effort required. This is NOT for people on the go.

Patience is the key to getting a successful starter following the books instructions (it took nearly 3 months of daily feeding to get something useable). I attribute that to the low room temperature in my house when I began the process in early spring. Once summer hit, the house temperature was more favorable and the starter took off.

My first loaf was a complete flop, but after I got the hang of it and started the develop a feel for the dough and process I turn out textbook boule loaves every time (which is rare because it's hard to find 2 solid days to prepare 2 loaves of bread).

It's truly a starting point for tweaking and adjusting Chad's recipe to your own life/schedule.

Chad Robertson's approach both very experimental and guiding. He teaches the fundamentals, but also encourages about finding your way. He experimented the method with first time bakers and shares their journeys too.

It is not easy to do as it takes all day to bake and to be at home. However, now that I got the feeling for baking this incredible bread, it is worth the work and time spent.

First loaf was delicious! The photos and step by step really help. Great book for those of us on the path of the great sourdough loaf.
