Baking Tartine Walnut Bread at Home
Use flour liberally
Tartine is a bakery in San Francisco that is known for their wonderful bread. They wrote a book giving out their recipes. Today, my girlfriend and I tried to make their walnut bread. This is not a quick bread to make. We started at noon and took it out of the oven a little after midnight. There was a couple of hours it could be left to sit (we went and watched a movie) but otherwise it needs a lot of attention. If you want to make this bread I encourage you to get the book. They have lots of pictures and fairly good descriptions. Here I will give some extra hints for the casual home baker like myself.
