Judith Fertig is as versatile as cookbook authors can be. As for The Artisan Bread Machine, there are recipes for 1-pound loaves of bread as well as two other sizes. This is good news for me since I have one of the first bread machines that made a pound loaf. Until this cookbook, I thought the machine that makes a pound loaf had been forgotten. The recipes also incorporate the wider range of flours available now. Since we're more sophisticated about our bread preferences, The Artisan Bread Machine meets those needs. Like my popover pan, Fertig's book has motivated me to dust off my bread machine as well!
Making Things Stretch - Suzanne Sniffen
My conclusion is that this is a great bread machine cookbook if you like to do part whole wheat breads, are interested in making sourdough breads from scratch, or like to make other all white flour breads. The Anadama Bread recipe is a keeper for me. I am looking forward to trying one of the other sourdough recipes. The directions for all of the recipes are very clear and it makes this cookbook very easy to use. Just don't lose your place as to what you've already put in your pan like I did once and had to correct. If you have dough enhancer that you can get at a store nearby, then the 100 percent whole wheat recipes may be feasible for you. They aren't for me at this point, but I liked the other recipes enough to say that I really like this Bread Machine book. If you like using your bread machine at home and are always tempted to buy fancy breads from a bakery, this cookbook would be a blessing. You can try all the breads you've been curious about without having to spend four to six dollars a loaf!

Another Robert Rose book that may have you loving bread again, is the Artisan Bread Machine Book by Judith Fertig (Robert Rose 2011). I like this book because it offers a new view of how to use bread machines. along with recipes for in-the-machine baked breads, and "artisanal" breads where you use the machine to make the dough, and then finish the bread in the oven, shaping it and adding different ingredients. There are even recipes for gluten free breads (gluten-free becoming increasingly popular). And none of the recipes are so arduous that you would need hours and hours to finish them. Nothing tops the smell and the taste of just-out-of-the-oven, hot, crusty bread. The Artisan Bread Machine book will offer you new ways to use your bread machine. So take it out of the back of the closet. And start baking!
CookingNook.com - Karen Ciancio
I love this book! Bread machines are once again gaining in popularity, as new machines allow you to make a loaf of bread that actually looks and cuts like a loaf instead of a tube. Now, even the most inexperienced home cook can successfully bake bread every time. In her new book, Judith Fertig combines the convenience of the bread machine with the huge resurgence of interest in the time-honored tradition of artisan breads. One of the things I love about this bread machine recipe book is that Judith provides exact measurements for all sizes of bread machines from those that make a 1 pound loaf to 1 1/2 pounds, 2 pounds or three. There's no need to second guess if your bread machine is a different size than the recipe calls for as there can be in other bread machine recipes. The 250 recipes in this book use the bread machine to create delicious breads from around the world, including whole-grain and flavored breads, sourdough breads, flatbreads and pizzas, gluten-free breads, sweet breads, rolls, both sweet and savory and festive breads. I also like this book because Judith also includes a comprehensive section on how to work with various types of flours, such as doppio zero, sorghum, white whole-wheat and durum flours, as well as other special bread-baking ingredients that are now on the market. The Artisan Bread Machine also contains trouble-shooting tips and techniques as well as valuable, easy-to-follow information on baking techniques using bread machines. This is a cookbook I will keep on my shelf and use over and over throughout the years.

    Bread better than a cookie...

    Yesterday afternoon, I took some bread I'd made over to a friend to sample. She gave a small piece to her one year old daughter. We were both surprised when her daughter chose the bread over a sugar cookie! The bread happened to be Anadama Bread made from my bread machine with a recipe from a new cookbook, The Artisan Bread Machine by Judith Fertig.

    I tried these recipes from this cookbook: Old Fashioned Buttermilk Bread, Oatmeal Honey Bread, and Anadama Bread

    I primarily bake whole wheat bread. I was especially curious about how her recipes worked out with my Zojirushi Bread Machine. So, first I'll address her whole wheat recipes. She says that you either need to use part bread flour and part whole wheat or add Artisan Dough Enhancer (there's a recipe in the cookbook) with 100% whole wheat. I use a recipe that allows me to only add Wheat Gluten to my whole wheat flour. I couldn't find the ingredients for the Dough Enhancer at my local grocery store and I do live in a large metropolitan area. I believe I'd need to go to a natural foods store. Since I didn't have the dough enhancer, I chose to make the Anadama Bread using my usual fresh whole wheat modification. Ms. Fertig adds that you need to watch the dough and add 1-2 Tbsp of flour as needed. I usually get my bread set up and leave it. I have found this substitution to work really well for me:

    In a recipe that calls for whole wheat flour, 1 cup whole wheat flour = 1 cup + 2 Tbsp. fresh whole wheat flour

    This substitution works with this book as well. The Anadama Bread is the bread my daughter's little girl held tightly onto. My 7 year old raved about it. I loved its molasses, cornmeal crunch mixed with the wheat flour. It was surprisingly not too dense. It wasn't airy, though. It was just right.

    The Oatmeal Honey Bread was served to the guests at my son's birthday party in the form of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Everyone said, "This is homemade bread, isn't it?!" I answered affirmatively. It was well liked. I thought it turned out a little too moist though. It would need to be eaten that day--which is pretty easily done in my home.

    The final bread I made is the Old Fashioned Buttermilk Bread. It involves a buttermilk sponge--a type of sourdough starter. My sponge did not double in size in 24 hours, though I covered it and followed all the directions. I used it as is and made the bread. The bread looked almost undone on top, but when I took it out of the pan and sliced into the bread, it was perfectly done.

    My conclusion is that this is a great bread machine cookbook if you like to do part whole wheat breads, are interested in making sourdough breads from scratch, or like to make other all white flour breads. The Anadama Bread recipe is a keeper for me. I am looking forward to trying one of the other sourdough recipes. The directions for all of the recipes are very clear and it makes this cookbook very easy to use. Just don't lose your place as to what you've already put in your pan like I did once and had to correct. If you have dough enhancer that you can get at a store nearby, then the 100% whole wheat recipes may be feasible for you. They aren't for me at this point, but I liked the other recipes enough to say that I really like this Bread Machine book. If you like using your bread machine at home and are always tempted to buy fancy breads from a bakery, this cookbook would be a blessing. You can try a
