“Books are a uniquely portable magic”
Stephen King, On Writing 

A picture book. A book with pictures. At Walla Walla General Store we are inspired and delighted by books that allow us to disappear into another world. Art books to stretch the possible and question everything, interiors books to show us new patterns and arrangements and ways of living and cookbooks to allow us to travel to Thailand or New York City or anywhere a date palm will grow. We have a small, everchanging collection of titles for various dreams and ponderings. 

The third in a series of classic, collectible cookbooks from Tartine Bakery & Cafe, one of the great bakeries, Tartine Book No. 3 is a revolutionary, and altogether timely, exploration of baking with whole grains. The narrative of Chad Robertson's search for ancient flavors in heirloom grains is interwoven with 85 recipes for whole-grain versions of Tartine favorites. Robertson shares his groundbreaking new methods of bread baking including new techniques for whole-grain loaves, as well as porridge breads and loaves made with sprouted grains. This book also revisits the iconic Tartine Bakery pastry recipes, reformulating them to include whole grains, nut milks, and alternative sweeteners. More than 100 photographs of the journey, the bread, the pastry and the people, make this is a must-have reference for the modern baker.
