Artisan Bread in 5 minutes a day GIVE AWAY!!!
Alright kids, simmer down, settle in, I have a story to tell you. Once upon a time there was a girl and she couldn't bake bread. She could however bake a loaf of dense brick like bread with great finesse and ease. If there was a contest for that, she would win, and dominate...no question about that. Then one day she bought a book that forever changed her life...here enters from left stage...ARTISAN BREAD IN 5 MINUTES A DAY!
No need to mince words folks, this book changed my life, and it is awesome. I went to pastry school and I took a bread class, but it was a ho hum class, and not very good...I came out of that class not knowing or understanding bread anymore or any less. I was determined to find a way that I could make bread quickly and confidently. I found all my answers in this Holy grail of cook books! Whenever someone asks me if I can recommend a good bread cook book I always start with Artisan Bread in 5 minutes a day. With this book anyone can make bread. I could leave my 7 year old niece with it and come back and find a beautiful loaf waiting to be eaten.
The recipes in Artisan Bread in 5 minutes a day go as follows, dump, stir, sit, shape, bake...I tell no lies, it is that simple. So if you are one of those people who never ever thought they were capable of making bread that was beautiful, then this book is for you. Or if you are that person who already knows how to make bread, but wishes it was quicker and more accessible...then this book is also for you. Or if you are that person who loves to eat bread, but doesn't even know where the oven is located in your house...or when I say "mix" you think "tape"...then this is also for you.
I have tried so many recipes from this book I don't even know where to start. Of course their basic boulee loaf is an all time favorite. Then the Brioche, the Challah, dinner rolls...etc, etc. The list goes on and on and on. You should just go and buy the book, really it is worth your time and money. If you want to buy this book click on the book image on the right side bar of this post.
