"The Tassajara Bread Book has been a favorite among renowned chefs and novice bakers alike for more than thirty years. In this deluxe edition, the same gentle, clear instructions and wonderful recipes are presented in a new paperback format with an updated interior design and full-color photos of the breads. Deborah Madison, author of Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, says, This little book has long been a guide for those who want to bake but don t know where to begin, as well as for those who want to go beyond and discover not just recipes, but bread making itself. "
"The bible for bread baking."--The Washington Post
"A baking Zen priest after [our] own heart!"--O, The Oprah Magazine
"This was the first cookbook I ever bought for myself back when it was first published. To this day, I consider The Tassajara Bread Book to have been a major influence not just on my cooking and baking, but on my attitude and philosophy about food in general. Thank you, Ed Brown, for this lasting gift."--Mollie Katzen, author of Moosewood Cookbook
"I feel a special fondness for this book, which helped launch me on my way to baking bread. Edward Brown's warmth shines through on every page, the recipes remain wonderfully unusual (I love the three-layer corn bread, which I've never seen elsewhere), and the overall experience is one of brilliant simplicity."--Mark Bittman, author of How to Cook Everything
"Like thousands of cooks of my generation, I have in my kitchen an ancient volume of The Tassajara Bread Book, its cover gritty with flour, its spine cracked from use, its pages stained with molasses, and dog-eared with decades of perusal. It is the book that taught me how to make bread and its simple wisdom has been present in every loaf I have baked. I will recommend it with enthusiasm to a new generation of cooks."--Steve Raichlen, author of The Barbeque Bible
