The New Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day
I have been a fan of the original Artisan Bread in Five, and I have loved the New Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day even more. The benefits to the newest version is that you make a multiple batch dough, then use it over an undisclosed amount of time making homemade artisan bread even easier than before. The only issues I have now are being sure to not bake up all the batches at once because I can't wait, wondering why I don't have a pretty little Danish dough whisk, and finding something big enough to store the dough in for a few days. It may be a good idea to purchase the six quart food storage set usually sold with it on Amazon, or all three as a gift.
I love the tips and recipes for gluten free breads, and the clear and understandable language of the book. The photography is beautiful, but doesn't get in the way of the great and reliable recipes. The recipes we have made from this book have turned out lovely, and were more experiences than baked goods. Every child should know the beauty of bread dough and the feeling of flour between their fingers.
