Praise for "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day "and "Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day"
"Soon the bread will be making itself... The crusty, full-flavored loaf that results may be the world's easiest yeast bread." --The New York Times
"If man cannot live by bread alone, it may be because Jeff Hertzberg and Zoe Francois didn't publish their book sooner... [They've] developed a method that makes any home into a mini artisan bake shop... Hertzberg and Francois' practical, common-sense method... is, quite simply, genius." --Robin Mathers Jenkins, Chicago Tribune
.".. even people who've spent their lives avoiding the kitchen can whip up a loaf of bread in five minutes..." --The Today Show
.".. a book that has eliminated that marathon of prep and angst... the aroma's wonderful, and there's a slightly sour tang... ooh, that's dynamite! This is fabulous..." --Lynne Rossetto Kasper, on The Splendid Table radio show, 12/15/2007
.".. whenever we need bread, I just dip into the container, pull out some dough, let it rest a bit and then bake a loaf, rolls, or pizza. This method is amazingly simple--and creates authentic European-style fresh bread... The cost? about 40 cents for a one-pound loaf!" --Woman's Day Magazine
Praise for "Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day"
..".Zoe Francois 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
..".it's a vast improvement over the laborious process of making artisan breads using classic methods... in their new book, Hertzberg and Francois 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..." --Associated Press
..".you can make high-quality homemade bread. There's no need to knead or be held hostage by the clock waiting for the dough to rise... under their five-minutes-a-day me

The normal breads taste wonderful. Eventhough there is already a basic pizza recipe in their first book, this book has a variety of this recipe. It uses no oil, some oil, a lot of oil, whole grain flour, basic white flour, unbleached flour. And the pizza's are really tasteful and quicker ready than ordering in one. And so much more tasteful, cheaper and healthier. The flat bread recipes were the reason I ordered this book and there are recipes for quick chapatis, pitas, naan f.E. And what tastes better then this bread warm from the oven? Nothing.
Warning: my husband says he is a lucky man, that I bought these books, but he has gained some weight, because he likes it so much ;-)
Watch out for the English version of the 5 minute a day bread book. It has grams in stead of cups and is somewhat cheaper. The book has no picture, the American version does.
It really starts off from the basics so a beginner cook could still have a go. Once you get going it will also save you a ton of money from buying nice artisan breads as you can cook fresh bread EVERY day from the fridge if you wanted! :-)
This is part of a culture series based on their 'dough in a bucket' concept but I like this pizza and flatbread book EVEN better than the original book (which I also have).
My advice is buy both this and their original one and have a go at baking some bread - isn't as time-consuming as you might first think! If you are thinking of buying one then I advise to get this one first actually as the pizzas are easier to start doing than the loaves :-)
