Chad Robertson is a renowned baker. He co-owns Tartine Bakery with his wife, pastry chef Elizabeth Prueitt in San Francisco.
They both trained at the Culinary Institute of America in New York. Elisabeth and Chad traveled, trained, and cooked in France and upon their return,
they baked bread and created rustic, elegant pastries using many of the techniques they had learned abroad.
Chad and Elizabeth were nominated for James Beard Award for Outstanding Pastry Chefs in 2006 and 2007, and won the award in 2008.
Their first book, ‘Tartine’, was chosen by Corby Kummer of the Atlantic Monthly in the New York Times list of selected top ten cookbooks of 2006.
It was also nominated for a James Beard award for the photography of France Ruffenach. Tartine Bread is Chad’s second book, published by Chronicle Books.
We have been honoured to host some of the following guest chefs at Ballymaloe Cookery School over the years.
