Book Description

New from #1 international best selling author Lori Jane Stewart.
 
There is nothing more appetizing than the smell of bread cooking, and that is one of reasons why I have gathered together this collection of my favorite bread recipes.

Even better, is bread made with yeast - real artisan bread uses only wild yeast starter, flour, water, and salt.

In these recipes, I have tried to remain true to purist artisan bread but instead used readily available, active dry yeast rather than wild yeast starter. But I have adhered to one basic rule -– that all breads are made with yeast, by hand in small batches and without a fancy bread machine.

The French and the Italians are considered the masters of artisan bread making. Breads adhere to the four essential ingredients and a good quantity of water. They can be formed into all kinds of shapes and sizes. These include sourdoughs, baguettes, crusty ryes, brioche, ciabatta, focaccia, fougasse, and many more!

There is one cardinal rule to remember when baking this type of bread. Always use active yeast. If your yeast isn'’t bubbling when you mix it, then it is most likely no longer active. Without bubbling yeast, your bread won'’t rise. 

For crispier crusts, try not to add too much flour when kneading the dough. To achieve an excellent crust, add a small pan of water to the bottom of the oven and mist your loaves with water now and then while they bake.

If you enjoy cooking your own bread, then you may want to consider investing in high quality baking pans or tins. A true artisan bread depends on many factors, including the proper baking equipment. Many bakers use baker’s stones, which are relatively inexpensive which are readily available at good cooking supply stores or here on Amazon.

Enjoy baking and don'’t forget to share your bread with friends and family!
 
Author's Note - Baking artisan style bread at home is a wonderfully rewarding, but is more suited to the cook with moderate experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Reliable, Not for Beginners March 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Lori Stewart writes in her introduction to 25 Artisan Bread Recipes : How to Bake Beautiful Sweet and Savory Loaves at Home Without A Bread Machine (The Green Gourmet) "...real artisan bread uses only wild yeast starter, flour, water and salt." Thus I found it rather odd that even the single recipe she gives that contains only water, salt, flour and yeast calls for active dry yeast rather than the wild yeast starter she states is the hallmark of real artisan bread. By her own criteria, none of the recipes in 25 Artisan Bread Recipes are artisan bread. While I did find several good recipes, I also found more than a few that were incorrect along with out-of-date advice and more than a few places where critical information was missing. Things like how warm is warm, how hot is too hot, and how to tell when your bread is doubled are all critical bits of information when it comes to bread baking.

One bit of advice author Lori Jane Stewart imparts says "Always use active yeast. If your yeast isn't bubbling when you mix it, then it is most likely no longer active." That was certainly true in times past, but with the development of more modern strains of yeast like Saf Instant Yeast it is no longer necessary to proof your yeast. (Combine the yeast with part of the water and perhaps some sugar to dissolve and start to bloom.) It also isn't necessary or even necessarily desirable to buy yeast in expensive individual packets and most people who regularly bake bread do not.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great book for all bread lovers!! March 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have always been leary of making bread, but this book is inspiring. I actual made the braided sesame bread and it wasn't that difficult. It was a big hit in my house. I always get Lori's books when they come out and as usual the formatting is very good, the instructions are easy to follow and the recipes are fab.

Tomorrow it is Oatmeal molasses Bread which I am sure will be delicious for a mid morning snack. My daughter in law loves sweet breads and I cannot wait to show of my new learned skill at actually preparing bread. Maybe she will bring my grandchildren around more often.

Buy this book and start impressing your family and friends.

First let me stipulate that I have only reviewed one recipe, Honey Oatmeal Bread. This should have been labeled FAUX Honey Oatmeal Bread as the recipe does not call for either honey or oatmeal. I had hoped that this would have been corrected with the "updated" version but no.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love these recipes March 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have downloaded quite a few of The Green Gourmet books and they never fail to inspire me. I have a breadmaker but I have always wanted to bake some fancy breads from scratch. I have been quite successful with white bread and granary loaves but I wanted to try some different recipes. The garlic artisan bread called to me and it turned out very well. Went down a treat with the kids.

Next up is the artichoke pine nut bread which hopefully will turn out as delicious as it sounds :-)

One of my favorite gifts given to me is homemade bread! There is just nothing like it! My favorite in this wonderful recipe list are the butternut squash bread (being from the South), the buttery white bread (yum) and anything chocolate (Chocolate Cinnamon Babka). Who doesn't want to wake up to Cinnamon Raisin Bread baking? Ahh...download and enjoy! There is nothing like fresh baked bread to make a house have the aroma of HOME.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am a bread lover! March 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great recipe book to add to your collection if you are a bread lover like me! I absolutely love bread. I have been making different breads as long as I can remember and there are many recipes in this book that I have not seen before. One recipe that really took me back to my childhood is Panettone. My mother always use to bring home a loaf of this during the holidays from work. I can't believe that I never tried to make it myself. Well, that will change now. I am going to following the Panettone recipe in this book and make a loaf for my family this weekend.

Excellent read Lori!

More About the Author

The Green Gourmet is Lori Jane Stewart - an American author known for her books on food, wine, diet and nutrition. She is the writer of many international bestselling books including 'The Green Gourmet Organic Diet Book' and '50 Low Carb Brown Bag Lunch Recipes.'

Lori has a passion for good food and fine wine. She loves cooking and creating recipes using easily available fresh and healthy ingredients, and especially with with local organic fresh produce.
She lives in San Francisco along with her husband and two daughters.

Early Life and Interests:

Lori was born in Carmel-by-the-sea California in 1977. Her mother was a chef at a local seafood restaurant, and inspired by the rich cultural diversity of Carmel and her mother's experimentation with food, Lori developed an interest in cooking at an early age.

At the age of fifteen, Lori met Sarah at school. Sarah's father was the owner of a renowned wine bar, and would ferry the girl to ad from school, when he would regale them with tales of fine wine, vineyards and often tales of the local vintners too! After graduating, Sarah's father offered Lori a job at his wine bar. This was where Lori learned about different types of wines and their distinguishing taste and properties. By this time, Lori had become an excellent cook. Her job at the bar gave her an opportunity to experiment with the use of wine in her food.

Personal Life:

In 1999, Lori met Ryan, a video game programmer and wine enthusiast. They married in 2002 and moved to his hometown of San Francisco, where now live with two beautiful daughters, Sandy and Emily. Both girls have inherited the passion for food and cooking and they love to spend their weekends in the kitchen, watching and learning from their mother. Sandy, now eight, according to Ryan, is already a master baker and makes delicious cupcakes - under her mother's watchful eyes!

Ryan and Lori are both lovers of natural and organic food, and enjoy travelling to different regions to try the local specialities. On one such trip to Michigan, they helped an animal rescue organization save an abandoned greyhound found stuck in an icy lake, who they later adopted. Since then, Charlie has become a beloved member of their family who loves nothing better than their regular trips to the beach at Carmel.

Writing Career and Popular Work:

Since her days in the wine bar, Lori had a habit of writing down her recipes in her diary, and she had amassed a huge collection of unique, healthy and delicious recipes. On discovering Lori's secret recipe book, Sarah and Ryan encouraged Lori to get her work published. With great help and encouragement coming from Ryan and family, she acquired the technical knowledge and confidence to publish her own books.

Lori's first book 'The Green Gourmet Organic Diet Book' was an international bestseller in the health and nutrition category. The book got a full five star rating and excellent consumer reviews on Amazon. After the success of her first book, Lori continues to publish Green Gourmet food guides and recipe books, all of which can be found on this site.
The distinguishing factor of Lori's work is the mass appeal of her books. Her books and recipes cater to vegetarians, meat lovers, weight-watchers and epicures alike. Through her books, Lori strives to share her love of good food and wine with everyone.

Sandy and Emily, like their father, are extremely encouraging and cooperative as well. Looking at their passion and talent, Lori has no doubt about passing down the torch to them.
