Jeff & Zoë wrote their first book, Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day (2007) so that baking homemade bread would be easy enough to become a daily ritual for everyone. That includes people struggling to balance work, family, friends, & social life (pretty much all of us). They refined their methods for refrigerator-stored artisan dough while juggling busy careers and families. By 2011, “Artisan Bread” had a over 342,000 copies in print! Their second book, Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day (2009), takes that same super-fast approach but applies it to healthier ingredients like whole grains, fruits, & vegetables. A dozen of the recipes are 100% whole grain, & for the first time, they’ve included a chapter on gluten-free breads. Healthy Bread had over 109,000 copies in print by 2011. In Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day (2011), Jeff and Zoë show readers how to use their ingenious technique to make lightning-fast pizzas, flatbreads, and sweet and savory tarts from stored, no-knead dough. In addition to the classic flatbread doughs and pizza crusts, there are alternatives with whole grain, spelt, and gluten-free ingredients, and the authors include soups, salads, and spreads that turn flatbreads or pizza into a complete meal. So rise…to the occasion and get baking!
What an awesome series of books! I am very into making food from scratch for my family and having a home-cooked meal on the table every night. But I’ve found that I just don’t have a whole lot of time to bake homemade bread or rolls on top of making dinner. But this Five Minutes a Day series has changed that. Not only do these books include the master recipe with all sorts of variations, it includes sections on tips & techniques, ingredients used, and the equipment you’ll need to bake your very own breads, pizza doughs, and flatbreads. I love being able to pull out the amount of dough I need from the fridge and have a fresh, hot loaf of bread on the table for dinner! These cookbooks are definitely going to be a staple in our home! Also, The $5 Dinner Mom by Erin Chase has a huge assortment of dinners to feed your family on a budget! Go grab these books today and get a quick and easy meal on the table for dinner!
You can order your copies of all these great books from Amazon.com! Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day retails for $16.00.
