Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day

I’ve got a stack of bread books in the cupboard. Jeff Hertzberg and Zoe Francois’ book Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day is my favorite. They use a no-knead technique. The basic idea is to keep a big batch of dough in the refrigerator, then take out a piece and bake it every day.

The book isn’t limited to just this one technique though. It covers types of breads (boule, baguette, brioche), how to shape them, how to bake them properly in a home oven, and tasty treats to add into them or spread on them. It’s my go-to bread book when I want to learn or look something up fast. I wouldn’t represent my bread as artisan exactly, but this book de-mystified the process and put daily bread within my reach.
