Artisan Bread

Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day: The Discovery That Revolutionizes Home Baking

Amazon.com: Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day: The Discovery That Revolutionizes Home Baking: Jeff Hertzberg, Zoe Francois: Books

Quote:
While the phrase artisan bread typically evokes images of labor-intensive sessions and top-notch ingredients, for authors Hertzberg and François it means five minutes. An intriguing concept—high-quality, fresh bread in less time than it takes to boil water. The authors' promises of no kneading, no starter, no proofing yeast and no need for a bread machine is based on the concept of mixed and risen high-moisture dough stored in the fridge for up to two weeks (dough is cut into pieces and popped in the oven for fresh loaves as desired). Note: for those tracking minutes, the five-minutes doesn't include the 20-minute resting time for dough or 30 minutes for baking. After concise, introductory chapters on ingredients, equipment, and tips and techniques, readers are presented with the master recipe, a free-form loaf of French boule that is the model for all breads in the book. Three main chapters—Peasant Loaves, Flatbreads and Pizzas and Enriched Breads and Pastries—are filled with tempting selections and focus on ethnic breads and pastries including Couronne from France; Limpa from Scandinavia; Ksara from Morocco; Broa from Portugal; and Chocolate-Raisin Babka from the Ukraine, but the basics (Oatmeal Bread, Bagels, White Bread) are all here, too. A smattering of companion recipes such as Tuscan White Bean Dip and Portuguese Fish Stew are peppered throughout. While experienced bakers and true gourmands will skip this one, those looking for an innovative approach to making bread just might find it in these recipes.
Great book and the basic recipe is wayyy to easy and the baking converts to my ceramic grills :)

Check out what my Mom just gave me. 1965 vintage. http://www.rubylane.com/shops/garris...RL1633?gbase=1

I told her I'd cook a whole meal from the recipes. .....and promised not to modify them.

Not only does it contain some neat recipes, it has exact copies of various menus from different restaurants.

Oh yes! Recently received Rick Moonen's new book, "Fish without a Doubt."

Rick is a well-known seafood specialist/chef now located in Las Vegas (rm Seafood at the Mandalay Bay). His aim for this book was to come up with recipes that home cooks wouldn't feel intimidated by. He didn't use his restaurant kitchen at all. Instead, he and his co-author, Roy Finamore, rented a New York apartment (think teeeeeeeensy kitchen) and outfitted it with the kind of utensils and pans that most home cooks use. Also shopped at the local supermarket for the ingredients.

He wanted to demystify shopping for, storing and preparing fish, and I think he's done a great job! Even tho I'm an experienced fish cook, I'm learning lots of new tips and recipes cooking from this book.

I have a couple new ones to me, Hollyhocks and Radishes:Mrs. Chard's Cooking Almanac and The New England Table. Right now I am impatiently awaiting the arrival of Screen Doors and Sweet Tea: Recipes and Tales From a Southern Cook. It was ordered on July 31 and still hasn't arrived!

The New England Table sounds interesting. Do you like it?

Jeekinz, it is a so-so cookbook. I have seen far better. I bought it mainly because I was born and brought up in New England; lived there for half my life!

Marigene, do you have "The New England Epicure" by Leslie Land? It's an old book, but has great anecdotes and wonderful recipes.
