Beautiful book not the best cookbook,
This review is from: Tartine (Hardcover)
I agree with K Cole and Cricket's reviews. There are quite a few typos in this book. Some apparent prior to baking and some only apparent upon tasting the baked goods. I bake daily and I have had one too many failures with this cookbook even when scaling all of my ingredients. I can only hope that someone gets in the test kitchen and corrects the errors for the next edition.
I will give this cookbook two more recipe tries because I want to love it. Paging thru it makes me wish the bakery were in my city and right up the road.
I'll follow up again and with fingers crossed I'll be adding stars to my review

The amount of sugar for Devil's Food Cake stopped me dead in my tracks! 2+ cups for 1+ cup of flour! Way too much ...

say no more, I have declared war on publishing houses that blithely take my money knowing they have not adequately proof read their publication. I would think the author would monitor their product a little better given their name is on the cover . typos and errata are becoming all too common, craft books especially are particularly prone, but allowing the buyer to purchase ingredients and spend time and energy for a 'must fail' result ...its 'NOT ON'.
