There are few things better than the taste and smell of homemade bread. If you're looking for delicious bread recipes that everyone in your family will love, look no further than The New Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day: The Discovery That Revolutionizes Home Baking by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François. This cookbook is a revised and updated edition of one of the most best-selling bread cookbooks of all time, Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, and has some of the most delicious bread recipes you will ever come across.
This updated edition has over thirty brand new recipes that weren't in the previous edition, making it about 130 pages longer. All of these recipes stem from one simple idea: create a large batch of bread dough at once and refrigerate it, which majorly cuts down on prep time because you'll be making enough dough for several loaves of bread at once.
The first few chapters give a nice overview on bread baking in general, including the main ingredients and equipment you'll be using to make your own homemade bread. Chapter four (the last chapter before the book dives into bread recipes) gives a comprehensive guide to bread making tips and techniques. That way, if you have questions while you're preparing or baking your bread, you'll have a great guide to help you out. The chapter even includes a reader FAQ (frequently asked questions) section that directly addresses questions and problems that readers like yourself had when baking with recipes from the book's first edition.
The rest of this cookbook is entirely devoted to different types of bread recipes, from their "Master Recipe" to gluten-free breads. I really like the way this book is organized because not only are there easy-to-follow, step-by-step written directions, but quite a few of the recipes also have photos showing the steps as well.
Whether you're a novice baker or a professional, you're definitely going to want to have The New Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day in your cookbook collection.
