This afternoon, I was perusing TasteSpotting's blog, when I noticed that—in honour of their site's 4th anniversary—they were giving away the attractively designed and nicely-photographed book Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day. My mum has had this book on her cookbook shelf for at least a month now, but despite her hinting comments and entreaties, I have yet to try any of its contents (except for flipping through and admiring the photos). How terrible is that? 'Sounds like I need to get on this immediately!
Have any of you tried the recipes in it? If so, what do you think? The concept of easy-bake artisan breads sounds simple enough that the thought of sinking my teeth into a piping hot slice of fresh brioche just can't be helped.
Reward for just clicking on that link? You'll find a recipe for a lovely Rosemary Flax Baguette (yum, and I'm not even hungry right now...). Now then, you have until tomorrow at the stroke of midnight to enter the contest, so do before it's over.
Oh, and if you have any useful bread-making techniques to share (or some age-old recipe that your great-great-great French grandmother proudly whispered in sworn secrecy to you on her deathbed, that you'd consider exchanging for a tasty meal), please leave me some comment love!
