Review

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

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 "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day "and "Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day"

About the Author

The authors met in their children's music class in 2003 and wrote the best-selling Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, and Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day.

Jeff Hertzberg, M.D. grew up eating New York pizza and spent years trying to figure out how to make dough that was convenient enough to use for daily pizza, flatbreads, and loaves. But really, he just wanted to learn to throw pizza dough high into the air. He lives in Minneapolis with his wife and two daughters.

Zoë François is a pastry chef trained at the Culinary Institute of America, but she is a pizzaiola at heart. While writing Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day she traveled far and wide to eat every pizza and flatbread she could find. In addition to tossing pizzas she creates desserts on her pastry blog zoebakes.com. She lives in Minneapolis with her husband and two sons.

The authors answer questions on pizza, flatbread, and all things bread at PizzaIn5.com.

According to the authors of this cook book, the "secret" to creating "quick" and great-tasting pizza and flatbreads is simply this: Mix up lots of dough at one time and store in the frig--you'll gather and mix simple ingredients one time, then over the course of a week or two, you will take just a few minutes to drag the dough container out of the frig, separate a piece from the batch, roll it out, get your toppings on and get it into the oven or onto the grill. So--big decision here--before you purchase this cook book, decide if you're willing to eat flatbread several times a week. OR, since this is such a great idea, work your thought process around to "Who best to share this windfall with?" Actually, the only thing that might hold you back is finding room in your frig for a round 5- or 6-quart container to hold your dough.......

(Of course the "five minute" claim does not include creating your toppings, preheating your oven or grill, or baking. That time's not going to shorten up any which way you try to work it.)

Besides the recipes for large amounts of dough, there are other small batch recipes also. So, there are quite a lot of options available in the book--easily something for everyone. Plus there are all kinds of sauce recipes and suggestions/descriptions for all kinds of cheeses and toppings. And while these authors have their favorite equipment--based on their vast experience--they also list many alternatives. So, basically, you can use whatever you have at hand. So much leeway here! So much room for creativity! So much room for variation! So much room for improvisation! So many suggestions for dealing with time constraints, $$$ constraints and cooking methods!

This book is not as life changing as the original Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day: The Discovery That Revolutionizes Home Baking. If you have that book, you probably already understand how you can apply the concepts to flatbread. I've used a modified version of their original bread recipe to make pizza for years (they do have a pizza recipe in that book). If you don't have that book and love all breads, I highly recommend it.

The basic concept is the same as the original book. Make a huge batch of dough at one time, and as the dough ages it turns out to be kind of sourdoughy in flavor. No kneading, very little mixing. It's a great way to make great tasting bread or pizza. It's a really moist, a little hard to work with dough. You get used to working with it. When I was really doing my own bread all the time, it really did only take about 5 minutes of my time to get a loaf in the oven (the five minutes doesn't take into account baking time).

This book is great you just want to learn how to make an easy, homemade pizza crust. It has some recipes for small batches too, if you're not feeding a pizza army. Lots of variations and tips aimed at pizza and other flatbread like naan and pita bread.

It also has some information on sauces and toppings for pizza, but I find it weak in the respect. It's really a dough book.

Another weakness is that it claims to have "Gluten-free" and "Whole Grain" recipes. It does have a gluten-free recipe, but I'm not fond of it. I've found better and easier gluten-free pizza recipes on the Internet. So, if you're looking for specific advice on gluten-free dough, don't go for this this one.

I also own the original "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes," so I was looking forward to seeing how they adapted it for pizza crust. I love, love pizza and am constantly in search of the perfect thin, crispy, Italian-style crust for homemade pizza.

Like the original artisan bread book, the killer feature of this book is the ease of making the dough. You literally mix five ingredients together, either by hand or using an electric mixer, let it sit for at least 2 hours, then use it regularly for up to two weeks. It just doesn't get easier than that. (The trick is to make a very wet dough. If you haven't made a wet dough before, you may be surprised at how sticky it really is, but you'll get used to it quickly.)

After introductory sections on equipment, ingredients, and general tips (including helpful ones on how thick to roll out the dough for different effects), they give a series of thin crust recipes. They start with ones using unbleached flour, which I guess is supposed to be the easiest basic crust, and then move through a couple of variations culminating in using low-protein "00 flour," like you can get from King Arthur Flour.

Like I said, I've been in search of a great homemade pizza crust for a long time, so I ordered the 00 flour from King Arthur on the first day. It hasn't arrived yet, but they also give a recipe for making a low-protein flour crust using a combination of cake flour and unbleached flour. I tried that first, since I'm way beyond needing another basic unbleached flour crust recipe.

So how did this first crust turn out? It was definitely a more tender dough because of the cake flour than I've been used to with pizza dough, and the result was, indeed, crispier than I've made before. I'm encouraged.
