With more than half a million copies of their books in print, Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François have proven that people want to bake their own bread, so long as they can do it easily and quickly.

Responding to their thousands of ardent fans, Jeff and Zoë returned to their test kitchens to whip up more delicious baking recipes. They've also included a gluten-free chapter, forty all-new gorgeous color photos, and one hundred informative black-and-white how-to photos. They've made the "Tips and Techniques" and "Ingredients" chapters bigger and better than ever before, and included readers' Frequently Asked Questions.

This revised edition also includes more than thirty brand-new recipes for Beer-Cheese Bread, Crock-Pot Bread, Panini, Pretzel Buns, Apple-Stuffed French Toast, and many more. There's nothing like the smell of freshly baked bread to fill a kitchen with warmth, eager appetites, and endless praise. Now, using Jeff and Zoë's innovative technique, you can create bread that rivals those of the finest bakers in the world in just five minutes of active preparation time.

I bought the original Artisan Bread in 5 minutes and loved the bread recipes. On TV I happened to see a live demonstration from the authors regarding the new bread book and I couldn't wait to get it on my Nook. I was very disappointed to say the least very, very few new recipes and again the same filler recipes for soup, dip, marmalade, sandwiches. Good recipes but I have other cookbooks for that. An advertised Bread book should be predominately about bread recipes. This is more like a Bread making & Entertaining book. Like the title, I thought this would be completely about making different breads. If you haven't bought the original than this "new" book might just be to your liking.

Fun book and fun recipes, beautiful bread photos. Even a novice baker can make great homemade bread. It really is possible to have freshly made bread any time of the day. I have two different bread doughs in my refrigerator and plan to start baking now. Gotta go.

This book has started a new tradition in our household. Fresh bread almost every day. The bit about five minutes? That would be correct. A few minutes of prep time each day, then a half hour in the oven and we get a great loaf of fresh bread. The bread is better than almost every recipe one I've tried. Only Julia Child's French bread is better, but that takes a couple of hours of hard work. Five minutes for near perfection is good fore me. On those rare days when there is a left over slice ... strawberry jelly on toast. Heaven.

I'm having great fun with baking the recipes from this book. I particularly enjoy peasant bread style artisan loaves. The hurdles on the path to a good, reliable loaf are easy to clear with the approach the authors have taken. The only downside is that the Nook version of the book has been very clumsily constructed. The content navigation takes you only to the first of each of the very long chapters. The individual recipes within each chapter then have to be traversed sequentially.

This book caught my eye with the easiness and away to have fresh bread every few days. I was not disappointed.n it is well written and easy to follow. It seemed to easy. Baked my first loaf yesterday and my husband the bread expert just loved it. I will work my way to other breads. I plan on dipping a loaf off for my grandaughters to bake so the can make mommy a surprise with dinner. At 4 and 2 they love bread and love to bake, wven they can join in.
