Description

The secret to Jim Lahey's bread is slow-rise fermentation. As Jim shows in My Bread, with step-by-step instructions followed by step-by-step pictures, the amount of labor you put in amounts to 5 minutes: mix water, flour, yeast, and salt, and then let time work its magic no kneading necessary. The process couldn t be more simple, or the results more inspiring. Here finally Jim Lahey gives us a cookbook that enables us to fit quality bread into our lives at home.
