Doesn’t that bread look amazing?
I was skeptical when I saw the title of this book. How can bread only take 5 minutes a day? I’m sure I could eat a loaf in 5 minutes, but didn’t realized it could be made that quickly since the bread making process is typically labor intensive and time consuming.
Through much practice and experimentation, Jeff Hertzberg and Zoe Francois have simplified bread making that allows home bakers to save time and still end up with bread that tastes and looks great.
This is what they learned:
- Bread dough can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator.
- Yeast does not need to be “proofed.”
- Kneading is not necessary.
- Loaves don’t need to rest & rise in a draft free area.
- No need to worry about doubling or tripling.
- Stored dough shouldn’t be punched down to rise again.
By following the instructions in this beautiful book, you can bake fresh bread daily without spending all day in the kitchen. They’ve also got some great recipes and ideas for what to do with the bread after you’ve baked it.
