Teaser: Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes A Day

This is more of a teaser post than an actual writeup.  I just finished making a loaf of bread and I can't believe how easy it is!  I recently bought the book: Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoe Francois after seeing it recommended on some food blogs.  They took the traditional steps of bread making and turn it on it's head - simplifying the whole process.  So I gave their method a try today and here are the results!

Here's a look of the crumb.  It's a 30% whole wheat loaf:

The crust was really crackly and crusty (I used the dutch oven method of introducing steam).  And the texture of the bread itself was amazing.

The book contains a lot of recipes for different variants of bread.  But if you're just interested in the technique, they posted their 'master recipe' on youtube.  You can watch it and try it out to see how easy it is!

I will follow up this post with a step by step guide.  I'm just so excited about this discovery I had to post a teaser.
