Description

The New Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day is a fully revised and updated edition of the bestselling cookbook featuring the quick and easy way to make nutritious whole grain artisan bread--a perfect gift for foodies and bakers!

Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François shocked the baking world when they proved that homemade yeast dough could be stored in the refrigerator to use whenever you need it, and they adapted the method for whole grains in Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day. Now, in this updated second edition, they’ve done it again, showcasing whole grains and heirloom flours like spelt, sprouted wheat, and khorasan. Also new in this edition is a super-fast natural sourdough, weight equivalents for every dough recipe, and intriguing new oils like coconut, avocado, grapeseed, and flaxseed.

The New Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day has 33 new recipes as well as old favorites, including 100% Whole Wheat Bread, Whole Grain Garlic Knots with Parsley and Olive Oil, Whole Grain Crock Pot Bread, Rosemary Flax Baguette, Cinnamon-Raisin Whole Wheat Bagels, Pumpkin Pie Brioche, Raisin Buns, Challah, Whole Wheat Soft Pretzels, gluten-free breads, and many more.

With over a half-million copies in print, the Bread in Five series is the quick and easy way to create healthy breads that rival those of the finest bakeries in the world—with just five minutes a day of active preparation time.

“Zoë François and Jeff Hertzberg have amazingly demystified the arcane and delightful world of artisan bread. Now, on the heels of time sensitivity (Hello… 5 minutes??? Really? Yes!), comes a baking book for the health-conscious, and it couldn’t be more timely. Bottom line, I would crawl across a desert of broken glass to hop into their loaf pan.”—Andrew Zimmern, Travel Channel host, food writer, and radio personality

“[I]t’s a vast improvement over the laborious process of making artisan breads using classic methods . . . in their new book, Hertzberg and François have gone one step further . . . baking breads that use less sugar, healthy grains, fruits and vegetables, and are friendly to those with allergies or food sensitivities.”—The Associated Press

“Every step of Zoë and Jeff’s adventures in bread has been fascinating and delicious for us, the home bread bakers who follow them, but this book might be their most exciting yet because they’ve incorporated years of readers’ questions, problems, and discoveries into every chapter.

And there are plenty of photographs . . . at last!”—Dorie Greenspan, James Beard Award-winning author of Around My French Table and owner of Beurre & Sel cookies
