Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day

Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day
The Discovery That Revolutionizes Home Baking
by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoe Francois.

With a 40% off border's coupon that I printed from my e-mail, this book cost me $18.07. (I saved $11.18)

I just couldn't resist it after seeing the website:
Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day

The book is lovely and I am very excited to try making bread from it. It seems like I will be able to have fresh bread whenever I want it. There are sweet and savory recipes, too.

I thought the bread was ok, but not even in the same league as NYT.

It is easier though.

Maybe I'll pull it off my shelf and make some sweet recipes.

What I like about the book is that if I have a question, I can go right to the site and they will answer any that I have. Never had that kind of support with any book I have ever purchased.

FYI: Rose Levy Beranbaum and Sarah the baking911 lady both do the same thing and my girlfriend has befriended Shirley O Coriher and gets answers by email and phone. There are lots of nice folks out there.

I LOVE Sarah, I'm a member of her site -- very, very good information available there. I didn't know about Rose's site, thanks for the info. I wonder if Julia has one.... Off to check.

They just finished their second manuscript. Next Thanksgiving, I bet it will be ready.

I didn't have time to do the NYT long rise over the weekend, so I made the 5 Min a Day bread instead.

I still think it's not nearly as good as the NYT bread.

Much easier though.
