Baker Chad Robertson and his wife, pastry chef Elisabeth Prueitt are the co-owners of Tartine Bakery and Bar Tartine 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, opened Bay Village Bakery in Point Reyes Station, California. Using a wood fired brick oven, they baked bread and created rustic, elegant pastries using many of the techniques they had learned abroad. Chad's bread garnered the attention of Alain Ducasse, who wrote about the couple in his book, Harvesting Excellence. After six years of baking in the countryside, they relocated to San Francisco to open Tartine Bakery in 2002. Elisabeth was named Pastry Chef of the Year in San Francisco Magazine. Tartine Bakery is continually rated in the Zagat Survey as Best Bakery and Best Breakfast in San Francisco. Elisabeth and Chad were nominated for James Beard Award for Outstanding Pastry Chefs in 2006 and 2007, and won the award in 2008.

In 2006, Robertson and Prueitt published the Tartine cookbook (Chronicle Books), an anthology of their beloved pastries and in 2010, Robertson published Tartine Bread (Chronicle Books), a book in which he shared 20 years of acquired bread baking wisdom. From there, he began to explore ancient, heirloom grains, which, in turn, became the focus of his most recent cookbook, Tartine Book No. 3 (Chronicle
Books, December 2013). Tartine Book No. 3 uncovers the range of possibilities in bread baking by pioneering innovative techniques to create complex, delicious flavors without compromising texture.
