The New Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day

Every now and then a cookbook comes along that you immediately know will have a place in your kitchen.  One of those books for me is The New Artison Bread in Five Minutes a Day. After a couple of hours scouring the pages of this book, I have quite the list of bread and rolls to bake!

 When their huge bestseller Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day was published in 2007, it immediately became the classic book on bread-making. With more than half a million copies now in print, Hertzberg and François prove that people want to bake their own bread, provided they can do it easily and quickly.

The authors have completely revised and updated the book that had revolutionized bread-making. They’ve returned to their test kitchens to whip up more than 30 new recipes and an entire gluten-free chapter.  ENJOY!
