Announcing the next Chef Tess Bakeresse cookbook!
I just signed a book-deal for a Bread Art craft and baking book! That is the next release after the Gourmet Meal in a Jar book that I'm also working on currently!
The bread book is due to be released January of 2014!! We're super excited around here and today we had my friend Laura Sokol, the photographer, at my home taking pictures for 4 hours! I took these photos I'm sharing here. Hers were just amazing! I won't even tell you how many hours I baked and prepped for this first shoot. Yes, I never sleep. It's sick how hard I work, but then again, that's part of life isn't it? I love what I do. I wouldn't change a thing! That being said, I wanted to share some of the beautiful breads! There were many more, but here are some of my favorites...
Goldfish sweet bread
Sea-shell sourdough on a bed of French grey sea-salt.
Light rye and herb star-spangled loaf.
Yeast-raised Gingerbread and orange crown loaf.
Garlic and herbs of the vine bread.
Fleur-de-lis for me (personal-sized French buns)
Rye-decorative dough embellishments.
Rose-petal Cardamom-infused Sweet Ciabatta
Natural herb-and spice enveloped baguette tutorial
Fall herb and sweet pepper Ciabatta
Lavender and Lilac Rolls
Ribbons and wrap sandwich buns
Sweet Pea Floral Tutorial
That's just a sneak preview of many many more things to come! I love you my darlings! Thank you for your encouragement and sweet support. It is what keeps me going every single day...that being said, tonight, I'll be sleeping like a rock. It has been a wonderful day.
Always My Very Best,
Your Friend Chef Tess
