To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Love this cookbook! I first saw it at a colleague's last year, and absolutely fell in love. The classic French recipes for baking are made so much easier than I expected. The varieties are colourful, with something for any mood you're in. The directions are very straightforward and make light work of a daunting task -- with options for stand mixers, hand mixers, and mixing by hand for each recipe. Very useful if you only do the latter! The first time I made a successful choux was a proud moment, and all because of Tartine 💯
A lovely produced book, with a few problems. The first and most annoying is the lack of metric weight measurements for ALL of the ingredient. It will give some of the dry ingredient in grams, some wet ingredients in ml, but then annoying omits all other additions and switches to the delivish "1/8 tsp" and "1 cup". It is so much easier to weigh everything, other than switching back and forth when making the recipe. Why go through the effort of giving weighted measurements but not follow through with all of ingredients? Second some of the recipes seem a bit dumbed down. For a bakery making lots of its reputation on beautiful sourdough bread, I'm surprised to see a lack of levain in its few bread recipes. Also be warned there is a weird obsession with Matcha. You can't go a few pages without it cropping up. Other than that, it is beautiful to look at and I'm sure there are some good recipes in its pages.
