flour + water + love

Chad Robertson is the bread baker at Tartine, San Francisco. He makes the most beautiful bread he can, because he wants to. He doesn’t try to make too much of it. (Just 175 loaves a day, which sell out in an hour.) He’s analytical, thoughtful, directed, probably brilliant. But he “wants to work with my hands”.

He has written a book about how you can make his bread at home. You can read a wonderful article about him in San Francisco Magazine. And watch a cool video at Bon Appetit.
