Chad Robertson's Tartine Bread Cookbook Sparks Cult Following

Let's Dish: What's the Most You're Willing to Pay For Bread?

San Francisco's Tartine Bakery is wildly popular, not only for its loaves and croissants, but also for its recently published cookbook, Tartine Bread, which has only been out for half a year but already has a cult following of amateur bread obsessives that The Wall Street Journal examines in a recent article.

I'm too timid to try fostering sourdough starters, but there have definitely been times when I've doled out upwards of $7 for Tartine's legendary loaf — which, although huge, is easy enough to devour within minutes. Katie feels the same way: it's a steep price to pay, worthy for certain special occasions.

How much money are you willing to spend — and how far and wide are you wiling to go — for that impeccable loaf?

I am cheap when it comes to bread since I very rarely just have a slice of bread. Unfortunately gluten-free bread is about $5 a loaf, which is painful!

I would buy Tartine bread more if they didn't require a reservation three days in advance for a loaf now! Who can plan that far ahead?

To be honest, I'm not a big bread buyer — I'll eat gluten like nobody's business, but it makes me tired sometimes. But when I do buy bread, I try to make it count — even if that means that a loaf costs $7!

I'm pretty sure my dad and I went crazy once at Della Fattoria in Petaluma. We were having a grilled cheese party and bought like $20 worth of bread.
