Artisan Bread

Postby minnie » Thu Jul 21, 2011 9:41 am

One thing I have been doing is making this bread.

I bought the book (Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day) and it works really well, and only takes literally 5 mins to make the dough. I used a plastic square container (bucket type with a handle).

http://www.foodess.com/2009/03/artisan- ... e-minutes/

The dough lasts for 2 weeks in the fridge, no kneading, and you break a bit off shape it and bake as required. So you always have lovely 'french' baguettes or artisan loaves on call. Mind you the dough hasn't lasted 2 weeks in our fridge, I made it Sunday night and we finished it yesterday and made more last night.

It was a case of putting warm water, yeast, salt and flour into the container mixing with a wooden spoon (from looking it's a better result than with the processor and dough hook) took one minute. Let it sit while watching tele and put it in the fridge before bed. It's quicker than a loaf in the breadmaker!

Sort of like the no knead one Jo does, but you can store and pull off small or large amounts, which is ideal for us.

The book has lots more recipes but the above website had the main dough, so the book is still worth buying I think. I got the book quite cheap from fishpond.com.au

Just found this video of them doing a wholewheat loaf and they give the recipe. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/031254 ... img%20src=

And on their website they have a step by step http://www.artisanbreadinfive.com/2010/ ... utes-a-day

Let me know if anyone else tries it. :D

Hi Vicki,
I've just finished mixing up a batch of the bread dough and now have to wait for the whole rise/collapse cycle - and then on to the baking (I think rolls for dinner). I also had a look at their website with all the great recipes and ideas, then had to order the book too ;) It will be fun trying the different breads. Thank you! Mira

Ugh... as if I didn't have enough to do... now curiousity is killing this cat, and I'm going to give it a go too! I've been thinking a lot recently about doing bread that isn't in the breadmaker!

Hi Mira,

Did you order the UK version with weights, rather than the US (like I did) with US volumes?

Heidi,

It's too easy for words, really!! Not much different to Jo's no knead other than you pull a bit at a time, over days, instead of cooking it all at once.

We've had rellies all weekend and it was so great to pull off a chunk for lunch and dinner and they loved it. :D

Hi Vicki,
I ordered through The Book Depository in the UK, so I am guessing it is the UK version?? I will know more when it arrives - can't wait. We did have the bread rolls that night (yum) and I have the last of the dough sitting in the fridge, waiting to be used up.... maybe tomorrow, with butter and vegemite for an after-school snack!
I have just made some yoghurt, and did bread and butter pickles a few days ago, so some food related activities are happening here, but not enough to boast about!
My garden is looking pretty sad right now - everything has collapsed with the frost and the whole back corner has been neglected with all the cold, rain and frost we've been having. One of these days I'll have to clean everything out and get the veggie patch ready for planting... but not just yet!
Hmmmm... must be the cold day blues - I don't think anyone has the urge to do anything other than what is really necessary. Can't wait for the weather to improve and then I'm sure I'll be in a better mood! :)

Hi Mira,

Let me know when it arrives, I hope it's the UK one.

I'm with you on the mood change with cold... just hate winter and find it very difficult to do anything!

Honestly Desley,

Once you do it, it's too easy for words and I always have a bucket of dough in the fridge now... must get some out for lunch today, forget to put on bread again. :lol:
