Wow,this post has been a long time in the coming. Today is the day if you love bread you MUST buy one or both of these books Artisan Bread In Five Minutes A day and Healthy Bread In Five Minutes A Day both by Jeff Hertzberg, M.D; & Zoe Francois. These books are amazing and yield the perfect bread results. I have made boule,bagettes,sandwich loafes,pizza crust and amazing hamburger buns. You can use regular unbleached flour, whole wheat flour, spelt or a number of others and it is so easy no more kneading and rising and kneading again. You can make a master recipe batch that lasts for 2 count em two weeks in the fridge. Of course mine never lasts that long and I even make a double batch, seriously depending on your recipe you could have only 4 ingredients, mix em up let the dough rise for about 2 hrs then refrigerate. Next pull out the dough cut off a chunck, shape it, let it rest for the set time and then bahe on a preheated stone for about 30 minutes. Ta-Da fresh hot artisan bread. Please for the love of everything good and right try this bread!
