I have become absolutely obsessed with baking bread lately. Seriously obsessed. It all started with this book.
Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. No lie. Five. Minutes. A. Day. Basically what you do is mix up a big batch of very wet dough and stick it in the fridge. Then every day you cut off a big hunk of it, let it proof for about 40 minutes and pop it in the oven. There's no kneading at all which is a huge plus for me.
I've only made the bread from the basic recipe so far, but I've baked at least 10 loaves of it and every one of them came out perfect. I follow the recipe exactly except that I bake the bread in a dutch oven, a la' the No Knead Bread recipe that was in the New York Times two years ago.
I love this book. Patrick and Erin are pretty fond of it too.
