Edward Espé Brown

The Tassajara Bread Book


Written by the head chef at the time of the famed Big Sur Tassajara Zen Mountain Center, The Tassajara Bread Book takes a zen approach to baking, with its primary focus being on life-giving breads. Emphasizing the importance of having a deeper, more intuitive understanding of the practice of baking, in true zen fashion, Brown offers something more akin to guidelines than strict recipes. In his words, "a skeletal framework."
