Welcome to Day 10 of the 12 Days of Christmas Cookbook Giveaway. The big day is almost here, and I know that you’re all busy baking cookies and planning your Christmas dinner. I hope that this holiday season is treating you all well, and that Santa has big plans in store!
Today’s selection is Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day: The Discovery That Revolutionizes Home Baking by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë Francois. You might remember Jeff and Zoë from my Food Blogger Spotlight interview with them last year. They’re a dynamic duo — a medical doctor and a professional baker — who joined forces to bring you two of the best bread-baking books on the market (the other book is Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day: 100 New Recipes Featuring Whole Grains, Fruits, Vegetables, and Gluten-Free Ingredients).
Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day is a book for people who love bread, but don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen every week baking loaf after loaf. No, Jeff and Zoë have devised a system that allows you to bake the freshest, most satisfying bread known to man, requiring less time that it to make a cup of coffee. With the recipes in this book, you invest a small amount of dough-making time in the beginning of the week, toss the dough in the fridge, and then use bits of it to make bread as you want it. It’s ingenious, really. And can you imagine having freshly baked bread every day? I’m beginning to swoon just thinking about it.
Again, this isn’t a gluten-free baking book. At all. But if you’re able to enjoy gluten breads, then I highly recommend Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. Your family will not only thank you for providing a daily cache of fresh bread — they may actually throw themselves to the ground at your feet.
Here’s how to enter: To win a copy of this book, leave a comment on a different post on my site, and then leave a comment here to tell me what you’ve done. For every post you comment on, you’ll get one entry. I’ll announce the winners on Christmas Eve.
