Peter Reinhart's Artisan Breads Every Day: Fast and Easy Recipes for World-Class Breads

nancy.taylor87, March 31, 2010

I have been baking pretty good quality bread for my family and friends the last few years. When I found Artisan Breads Every Day, I thought I'd give it a try. The difference is in the process, one which uses more water, virtually no fat or sugar, a cold process to raise the dough, and a very hot oven. Now the results: my daughter said it best, when she said, "You can't even tell it's homemade bread! That's a compliment Mom. I love your bread, but this is better than the Peasant bread that Dad buys us!".
Don't be put off if you haven't been baking bread. Pictures, step by step instructions, and a method that is so much easier are all detailed in the pages of this book. No more kneading till your hands ache. This book tells you how to use a simple stretching of the dough to gain the same results. Also, you start the bread dough, then refrigerate it overnight, or for a few days, until it's baking day. Baking day is a joke though. Once you try these recipes, you'll want everyday to be baking day!
