Praise for The New Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day
“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. This is truly the all-you’ve-ever-wanted-to-know edition. 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
“A fun, easy-to-follow collection for those who aren’t afraid to shun baking traditions.” –Publishers Weekly
“With this revised edition, Herzberg and François continue to perfect their already easy and immensely popular bread-baking method. Essential.” –Library Journal

“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 Zoë François didn’t publish their book sooner… [They've] developed a method that makes any home into a mini artisan bake shop… Hertzberg and François’ 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

He lives in Minneapolis with his wife and two daughters.
